• Wiesbaden High School
    US Army Housing Area, Wiesbaden-Hainerberg, Germany

    Baumann Consulting performed LEED consulting, energy modeling, fundamental and enhanced commissioning, and M&V for Wiesbaden high school, located in the US Army housing area in Wiesbaden, Germany.

This high school building is the first phase in a project upgrading the entire school campus. The middle and elementary schools are following, and the entire upgrade is set to be finished in 2021. The high school upgrade sets the standard for all three schools, which is designed according to the “21st Century Schools” Program standard.

The project achieved an outstanding result with energy savings of 59% compared to the ASHRAE 90.1 – 2007 Baseline, which earned the project the maximum possible points. This was mainly achieved, due to:

  • High Efficiency Pumps and Fans
  • LED‐Lighting
  • Low demand for mechanical cooling
  • Optimized Façade

Strategies used to achieve the anticipated exceptional performance of the building at the end of construction included:

  • Engaging in a fully implemented commissioning process in the design phase
  • Design reviews at 35/65/100% design stages
  • Regular commissioning meetings with contractors
  • Pre‐Functional Testing and Functional Performance Testing
  • Commissioning of all energy consuming systems (i.e. heating, ventilation, cooling, and lighting) and the façade
  • Optimizing building operation through ongoing M&V and analysis of trend data
