Project Description

Clark County Schools selected Performance Services to perform a hybrid school performance contract at Robert D. Campbell Junior High School and has since gained recognition for being the first known building to use smart, plug-and-play controllable chilled beam pump modules. The chilled beam approach will save $33,000 annually compared to the former unit ventilator system. The chilled beam design also enabled the reuse of 100% of the existing two-pipe system. After the successful 2016 project, the District implemented a second energy-focused project in 2017 and saved $243,656 in their first year.

Phase I Highlights

This project has created tremendous energy savings and the ability to provide 100% fresh air to our buildings for added safety and comfort for our students and staff—especially during COVID19.  Performance Services has worked closely with our staff to ensure our complete understanding of control system capabilities to benefit the District.
