with such valuable insights as available
capacity in existing building systems,
ability to accommodate variable air
volume, and benchmarks for energy use
by space type. In one instance, a design
consultancy tasked with renovating a
pharmacy area was planning on adding
a new air handling unit to meet the
needs of the new space programming
agenda. The budget for this project
was established at $250K. However,
since UF Health had eight years of data
available that provided guidance on

peak conditions, the design consultant
was able make the decision to use the
existing air handling unit, thereby saving
UF Health the first costs associated
with new equipment as well as multiple
years of additional operations and
maintenance costs.

Data drives performance
standards
Historical data also provides UF Health
with guidance on system performance.
Using metered data, UF Health can

easily compare the performance of such
different system types and approaches
as variable refrigerant flow versus
traditional chilled water-based variable
air volume systems. This data allows for
the calibration of energy models and a
better prediction of actual usage for each
corresponding system, in accordance
with UF Health's energy standards.
Through the archiving and analysis of
energy model data and tracking of actual
energy usage, UF Health has developed
a robust set of energy benchmarks for
different space types, providing guidance
to design teams on past performance
and setting performance expectations
for both new and renovation projects.
One key challenge facing UF Health
concerned the observation that many
newly constructed projects operated
significantly less efficiently than expected
through the first few years of occupancy,
inevitably requiring some level of
post-occupancy optimization effort. By
establishing energy benchmarks, UF
Health has been prepared to work with
their design and commissioning teams to
deliver new facilities in an optimized state
much sooner.

Data drives construction
standards
By establishing data standards and
collecting pertinent data from such
disparate systems as computerized
maintenance management and building
automation systems, UF Health has
been able to establish construction
standards that are based on true
lifecycle costs. For example, our practice
recognizes that sensors responsible
for the generation and logging of data
can only remain reliable if they have
maintained calibration. UF Health has
identified the sensing equipment most
critical for regulatory compliance,
patient comfort, and energy use. Taking
a structured, data-driven approach, UF
Health has defined performance and
quality expectations for this equipment
by balancing the need for calibration
against first costs.
