Performance Agreement Aids Florida Community College
PACT consists of a package of products and services customized to specific building requirements and designed to deliver significant cost reductions in energy, water, and operations. The energy savings achieved will help pay for the facility enhancements and renovations included in the contract with Seminole for its Sanford/Lake Mary and Oviedo campuses.
As part of the planned renovation, Trane will provide the following:
Other upgrades are slated, including plumbing, lighting, waste management, and water treatment.
"Seminole Community College had some major operational budget concerns," said Marty Hardin, team leader, Trane Services. "Its utility bills were going up, and they weren't getting any more money from the state to pay their bills. Their top line budget wasn't changing.
"We took a holistic approach to its campus and examined all facets of their system and how they impacted each other. We have a lot of niche technologies that can incrementally save a lot of money. The folks at Seminole work on this stuff everyday and, because of that, don't always see all the opportunities we do to save money."
Trane has been serving Seminole Community College since its inception more than 30 years ago.
