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, guaranteed to save $155,888 annually. Phase 1 and 2 savings exceeded the guarantee by 24.1% over the last three years.
