Town of Hanover, MA

Design-Build Engineer: Guardian Energy Management Solutions

Hanover meets its energy savings targets as a designated Green Community in Massachusetts. Weatherization measures designed and installed by B|E Retrofit.

The Challenge

At the foundation of an effective weatherization project is an energy auditor that can identify unwanted infiltration and heat loss. Add to that a thorough plan for the installation materials and methods necessary for a cost-effective solution to the building envelope weaknesses, and you have a winning combination.

The buildings in Hanover required creativity and hands-on expertise to design a detailed installation plan that met Hanover’s investment criteria and the local utility’s constraints for incentives.

The Solution

Guardian Energy Management Solutions called on B|E Retrofit’s expertise as a full-service building envelope specialist. With the expertise of energy auditors, project managers and installers under one roof, B|E Retrofit was able to create an effective design and overcome site-specific challenges to achieve the desired energy savings.

With B|E’s installation plan in place from the earliest phases of the project, there was a smooth transition from design to installation, the general contractor’s project manager experienced a hassle-free process, and the installation was successful. The weatherization measures installed at 3 schools and the library included:

  • Roof-Wall Intersection and Soffit Overhang Air Sealing
  • Door Weather Stripping
  • Window Casing Caulking
  • Wall Insulation
