This document is a summary report of the energy audit conducted by IAG Energy, LLC for the multifamily building located at 37-15 72nd Street in Queens, New York. The purpose of the audit was to provide energy use analysis, identify viable energy conservation measures that reduce energy and operating costs and provide estimates for the facility’s carbon footprint reduction as well as firm implementation costs and realistic savings.
The scope of work included a detailed survey of the building envelopes, mechanical and electrical systems, as well as an analysis of the building’s annual energy (electric, oil, and natural gas) costs and consumption. IAG Energy also documented the facility’s operating characteristics. The recommended ECM’s represent economically and technically feasible opportunities to improve the facility’s operating efficiency and to find ways to reduce ongoing energy and operating costs.
The facility includes fifty-nine (59) apartments, common areas, and mechanical room located at the ground level of the building. Overall, the energy consuming systems at this location appeared to be in good condition in terms of age and maintenance.
The building was constructed in 1927 and is owned and managed by Benson Funding. This is a 67,830 square foot multifamily apartment building that consists of 59 apartments. The building is located on 37-15 72nd Street in Queens, New York. This is a six story apartment building with one elevator, and no laundry facility.
