GE Healthcare Digital X-Ray Detector
GE Healthcare's new 230,000 square foot clean manufacturing facility in North Greenbush, NY, has received LEED Gold certification. SMRT designed and engineered the facility to increase energy efficiency by 27% compared to a baseline building in compliance with ASHRAE standards. Projected energy savings of $750,000 annually should result in a payback period of 2.1 years for the investment made in sustainable and renewable energy features.
Selected energy features include: passive and active solar, photovoltaic powered interior lighting, highly efficient building envelope, high performance glazing, centralized re-circulation air system units and premium efficiency motors with variable frequency drives.
