The energy performance of existing buildings is an important part of the future energy landscape, and a major challenge for building owners and operators.

BuildingEnvelopeIn order to address rising energy costs and reduce energy consumption, it is essential that we examine ways to improve the energy efficiency of existing buildings – which includes not only improving system efficiencies, but also upgrading the physical structure itself.

Whether retrofitting existing windows to reduce summer heat load and winter heat loss (as JLL did at the Empire State Building in New York City) or installing more energy efficient insulation, updates to a building’s envelope can achieve considerable energy savings and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

The value of energy efficiency initiatives is diminished if you haven’t addressed the building envelope itself. Want to learn more about how to increase your building’s energy efficiency? Join us for a discussion that will provide insight and guidance on economical and durable energy retrofits for existing buildings.
