November 4, 2014 By Linda Hardesty

Rise energy manageRise Engineering was awarded a $3.6 million competitive-bid contract to serve as the lead contractor for a comprehensive energy and water efficiency project at the Plymouth County Correctional Facility in Plymouth, Mass.

Onsite work began in October on the first of multiple energy and water conservation measures that are projected to reduce the jail’s annual utility expenses by 20 percent, or $520,000. The project is funded through the Commonwealth of Massachusett’s Accelerated Energy Program (AEP) and is scheduled to be completed in early spring 2015.

Rise Engineering will identify and manage multiple subcontractors and vendors across various technologies.

The project includes a 225 kW gas-fired combined heat and power plant that will provide both electricity and hot water to the facility. Other improvements include lighting upgrades, indoor lighting controls, kitchen exhaust hood control retrofits, ventilation controls, retro-commissioning of building equipment and system controls, and an ozone laundry system.

The four-story main building of the Plymouth County Correctional Facility encompasses 365,000 square feet of floor space.
