The Derby School District in Derby, Kansas, hired Building Controls and Services (BCS) for a $3.95 million strategic energy and maintenance program to implement needed facility improvements that will result in over $280,000 in annual savings.
Specific goals for the strategic energy and maintenance program include upgrading outdated equipment at the district’s middle school, reducing deferred maintenance backlog and providing technologies to evaluate energy performance metrics in all the buildings. The middle school will undergo a substantial steam to hot water conversion. Additionally, Derby Schools and BCS will create a five year strategic operations and capital improvement plan to prioritize and budget building HVAC needs within available funds.
Derby Schools has worked with BCS for over 20 years. The current project began April 1 and is expected to be complete by December 31.
