Project Background

SitelogIQ and its partner were contracted to provide design/build services under DCAMM’s Accelerated Energy Program at 10 locations of the Massachusetts Commonwealth’s Office of Trial Courts in the Western Region.  SitelogIQ completed the necessary design and construction oversight for 13 energy conservation measures to assist the facility in securing their energy future.

With an average age of 87 years old, the buildings in the Western Region Trial Courts had inefficient, aging infrastructure systems. The team designed and built significant energy improvements that renewed critical HVAC and other energy-consuming systems, provided control of energy, decreased the cost of building operations and helped secure the facilities from cost spikes through energy reduction.

Completed on schedule and on-budget, the work plan included adequate planning of the work for audit, design, procurement, and installation durations, as well as facility operations, seasonality, and working hours. The entire project was conducted in collaboration with local personnel and in consideration of the needs and safety of the Trial Courts staff and local citizens.

Springfield Judicial Complex

The Springfield Hall of Justice was constructed in 1973 and is a part of the Springfield Court Complex sharing utility meters with the neighboring Housing and Juvenile Building.  This 245,000 sqft building includes courtrooms, lock-up facilities, cafeteria, conference rooms and offices. ADI Energy recommended and oversaw the installation of eight measures including replacement central plant chillers, vending misers, water conservation devices, energy management systems, energy efficient lighting with related controls and VFDs on chilled water pumps.

This individual facility will save 738,748 kWh, 495 therms of natural gas and 16,397 gallons of water that represents approximately $59,000 in energy cost savings annually.

This 48,900 sqft building includes courtrooms, holding cells and offices. ADI Energy recommended and oversaw the installation of five measures including vending misers, water conservation devices, energy management systems, energy efficient lighting with related controls and VFDs on chilled water pumps.

This individual facility will save 142,160 and 2,334 gallons of water that represents approximately $17,000 in energy cost savings annually.

Chicopee District

The Chicopee District Court Building was constructed in 1985 and still had much of its original equipment. This 20,250 sqft building includes courtrooms, holding cells and offices.
