Hill York has a proven track record of delivering ENERGY EFFICIENCY PROGRAMS
to our clients.
Our approach is to partner with our clients to co-author the solutions that are in line with their mission and financial requirements. Once our clients realize the results of our programs, additional phases are often implemented as we strive for continual cost reductions whether they be from project implementation, operational modifications, or continued maintenance/energy services.
Leesburg Regional Medical Center
Project Scope: Recently, the South Campus of Leesburg Regional and the Day Surgery Center underwent a major infrastructure improvement project to increase the energy efficiency and comfort of the facilities. The products and initiatives put in place have improved conditions for patients, the facilities operations and the environment. The comprehensive program will reduce existing operational expenses of Central Florida Health Alliance by over $175,000 per year. The project will fund itself through the reduced cost and will generate positive cash flow over the life of the systems installed. Specifically the project consisted of the following energy conservation measures. LEARN MORE > Case Study | Leesburg Regional Medical Center
The intent of this massive project was to provide a building designed from the ground up to support 24/7/365 operation, to provide an internal data center capable of meeting the base’s needs, and to provide the necessary security for Sensitive Compartmentalized Information Facility areas for processing classified information.
Project Scope: Hill York installed a new 4000 ton central chiller plant with chillers, cooling towers with solid separators, and pumps with a primary/secondary chilled water loop configuration, with variable speed secondary chilled water pumps and cooling tower fans for substantial energy savings. We also installed all piping to service three buildings on the base; The Headquarters, Services, and CIOC buildings. This includes underground piping, and piping under a raised floor for an approximately 1000 ton data center. We had to accommodate SCIF areas by installing dielectric barriers to ensure no electromagnetic radiation from the space was transmitted by the metallic pipes.

ICORR Properties International, Phase I, II, III
At the completion of all three phases, One Sarasota Tower will have reduced its overall energy consumption by over 33% and should qualify for the prestigious Energy Star Building designation from the Department of Energy creating yet another avenue to promote the facility as one of Sarasota’s Premiere Class A commercial office spaces.
Project Scope: Phase I – This phase of the program was developed and implemented for two reasons. First, provide proof of concept to the owner. Second, to create a savings stream that would help fund future capital improvement projects. Phase II – Since the return on investment in the Phase I project was significant, it offered excess savings over the life expectancy of the equipment which was reinvested into needed infrastructure improvements at the facility. Phase III – The final phase of the program included a complete retrofit of the building VAV controls. LEARN MORE> Case Study | ICORR International
The City of Clearwater, Phase I – Long Recreation Center, Phase II – City Wide Energy Efficiency
Project Scope: Phase I – Hill York was the selected design build contractor in the installation of a dehumidification system to serve the natatorium, to install high efficiency packaged rooftop air conditioning units, and to implement heat recovery technology. Phase II – Hill York was again selected as the design build contractor for a second energy efficiency project. This project is partially funded by the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Program and Hill York has been fully compliant with various program requirements including, Buy American provisions.

The City of St. Pete Beach – Energy Efficiency & Community Reinvestment Program
After being awarded an energy efficiency grant from the State Energy Office, the City of St. Pete Beach selected Hill York’s Energy solutions group for design and implementation of a comprehensive energy efficiency program. Hill York ranked first amongst all companies competing for the City’s business through the public procurement process.
Project Scope: Detailed energy assessments were performed at all City facilities with the final comprehensive scope consisting of high efficiency heating and air conditioning systems, web enabled controls, recomissioning of existing control systems, solar thermal hot water heating, lighting systems and occupancy controls. The project was engineered in-house, managed and self implemented by Hill York technicians. The project was completed on time and on budget leading to high accolades from state auditors.

Nova Southeastern University Central Energy Plant (Zone 4)
An extraordinary collaboration between Hill York and Nova Southeastern University. When the ice tank is built out to full capacity, it will be one of the largest ice storage facilities within the United States.
Project Scope: The new Central Energy Plant was a design assist effort with B&A Engineers. The project required an intense fast track (Nova Track) construction schedule to meet the completion date, prior to the start of the school year. All of the piping systems were preplanned and prefabricated to allow chilled water circulation within 90 days of on-site installation. Intense planning and management strategies were employed to accomplish this goal on time and under budget. Initially, the new Zone 4 Plant will be able to provide 4,600 tons of cooling capacity, with room for another 6,900 tons of cooling capacity as future campus expansion is constructed. One of the main concerns with this project is how to run the plant continuously at peak efficiency to reduce operating costs.
