Their challenge

Before the commencement of this project, the Medical Center’s utility costs exceeded $14 million annually. Realizing that both the drain on the university’s resources and the negative environmental impact of this consumption was unsustainable, Stanford leadership brought in Salas O’Brien to remedy the issue.

Our solution

After performing a phase 1 energy and sustainability analysis, our engineering experts recommended sustainability projects totaling over $7 million with over $500,000 in claimed incentives. The Salas O’Brien team identified 18 projects as critical in the analysis stage, and then worked with the Stanford Medical Center to implement them.
