Aug. 13, 2014: ABM to Reduce Energy, Operating Costs by $19 Million for Colquitt Schools

Upgrades Include Replacing HVAC Equipment and Installing Centralized Building Controls with Remote Capabilities

NEW YORK — ABM, a leading provider of facility solutions, announced its ABM Building Solutions business has been selected by Colquitt County Schools, Moultrie, Georgia, to provide energy efficiency upgrades and facility enhancements to all 14 schools in the county through ABM’s Bundled Energy Solutions program. The project, scheduled to be completed in June 2016, is expected to save an estimated $19 million in energy and operating costs over a 15-year period.

ABM’s Bundled Energy Solutions program is designed as a financial solution to meet clients’ technical facility needs and sustainability goals. The goal is to drive costs out of a client’s operating budget, allowing savings to be reallocated to fund mission critical facility needs.

“We are proud to partner with ABM to not only make a difference in our district, but also our community as well,” said Dr. Samuel DePaul, superintendent for Colquitt County Schools. “The project helps to stabilize our budgeting efforts while supporting the district’s goal of providing a safe and quality learning environment.”

Energy and facility improvements will be made to the school district’s 10 elementary schools, two junior/middle schools, and two high school buildings. The upgrades include replacing more than 50 percent of the school district’s HVAC equipment and installing centralized building controls with remote capabilities. In addition, other building enhancements will include lighting upgrades, building envelope improvements, power management, transformer upgrades, refrigeration optimization, and utilization of water conservation methods.

“We are thrilled to be working with Colquitt County Schools,” said Scott Giacobbe, president of ABM Building & Energy Solutions. “They are showing their community and fellow school systems that they are among the most forward thinking by investing now in the infrastructure to save even more each day in the future while improving the learning environment for both students and staff.”
