The Challenge: The Ramada Inn had an overall need to improve building efficiency. It had inefficient lighting, an outdated controls system, and mechanical equipment in disrepair.
The Solution: We updated all the lighting with high efficient LED lights, as well as updated the controls system with one designed for variable occupancy. This gave the operator a single point of control for guest rooms. We installed a natatorium dehumidification system for their pool area, and solar roof panels too, with an ozone system for their laundry facility.
The Results: Due to the upgrades, they were able to heat 50% of their hot water with solar panels which greatly reduced their laundry costs. Their new controls system allowed them to set individual climates in the guest rooms which substantially improved comfort conditions and decreased utility costs.
