County Office Building
Allegheny Green Logo 

 

What the building is getting:

  • Replaced Failed Steam Traps & Thermostatic Radiator Valves, and Replaced Missing Insulation

    Failed steam and thermostatic traps found in steam radiators or other terminal units will be rebuilt or replaced in the City County Building, County Office Building, and Courthouse. In addition, missing insulation on piping and valves will be replaced to prevent heat loss from the system. The steam system upgrades generate $33,793 in guaranteed cost avoidance to Allegheny County.

  • Power Factor Correction

    Capacitors will be installed at the motor load centers of major equipment in the County Office Building. These capacitors will improve the power factor and electrical system to as close to unity (1.0) as possible. Power factor correction will guarantee $14,761 in cost avoidance to Allegheny County.

  • Server Room Weatherization

    The County Office Building will have a partition wall added to prevent infiltration from adjacent spaces and exfiltration of server room conditioned air. Server room weatherization guarantees $7,237 in annual savings to cost avoidance.
