Greenview Global affiliated Consultants were retained by Cashman Equipment to perform a Full Campus Building Commissioning exercise in order to ensure Cashman Equipment’s Administrative Offices maintained compliance with the Nevada Governor’s Office of Energy LEED Partial Tax Abatement Program. The Cashman Equipment Administrative Offices was one of the earliest LEED Certified Projects in Nevada and as well one of the early projects recommended for attempting to qualify for a new at the time initiative by the Nevada Governor’s Office of Energy to reward buildings that build to and attained LEED Certification with a minimum level of energy use reduction attained. The Cashman Equipment Administrative Offices attained a LEED Gold Certification which is really remarkable for a building of its usage type and as well was very efficient.
Greenview Global through affiliate Humann Building Solutions, LLC provided a campus-wide commissioning plan and thorough commissioning exercises with evaluation of the operable systems of the campus buildings. The process tasked the geothermal exchange based HVAC system with hybrid integrated fluid coolers (commonly known as cooling towers) and the fluid based HVAC heat-pumps as well as more conventional energy consuming systems. The full commissioning study in June and July of 2015 provide verification of very exemplary level of care by the on-site facilities management team and as well made several recommendations for further improvements. The building attained an Energy Star for Buildings rating of 86 (2014’s performance) meaning it was in the top 14% of all buildings when considering energy performance. The revisit in 2017 for the required reporting update saw many of the initiatives recommended installed even though the campus size grew and the building gained even more occupants as well as an improved Energy Star for Buildings rating of 89.
