Southern Columbia Area School District Completes a Second Phase Energy Savings Project with McClure Company
CATAWISSA, PA Southern Columbia Area School District's Board of Directors approved a second Act 39 -2010 / Act 163-2016 project with McClure Company. The first best value construction project, completed in 2014, focused on roofing, mechanical upgrades, building envelope and lighting.
For the current best value construction project, McClure Company provided an energy saving, safety focused and capital upgrade solution for the District. At the Elementary School, the District received a brand new HVAC system, a new entrance vestibule, an addition to the gymnasium and a secure administration office entrance. At the High School, a new LED lighting solution was installed in the auditorium and stage, as well as select air-conditioning upgrades. The Elementary, Middle and High school buildings received select double pane window upgrades, to replace existing single pane windows, and the stadium received new LED lighting.
Similar to the first phase, the projected cost savings will be contractually guaranteed by McClure Company over the contract term.
The current energy project had numerous benefits for Southern Columbia School District. In addition to guaranteed cost savings, the District upgraded the mechanical equipment, which will result in lower overall maintenance costs and improve equipment efficiency. The new LED lighting upgrade will result in increased lighting levels and the window upgrades improved the indoor comfort of students, teachers and District staff.
Southern Columbia's School District's commitment to energy efficiency has resulted in lower energy costs and increased saving of valuable tax-payer money.
