FREMONT, CA : Siemens Industry, sustainable and intelligent infrastructure technologies provider is all set ready to perform energy efficiency upgrades that are expected to help La Salle University in reducing its energy consumption by nearly 20 percent annually.

“Performance contracting has proven to be a cost effective way for universities to resolve deferred maintenance issues, reduce operation costs and free up capital for classroom renovations,” says Siemens representative, David Maurer. “These upgrades will help La Salle achieve significant energy savings and break down financial barriers to these improvements.”

The upgraded project includes a centralized building automation system, HVAC infrastructure and building envelope improvements, lighting and water conservation upgrades, smart classroom renovations, and Siemens Sustainability Education program.

“This collaboration with Siemens will push La Salle farther along our path to becoming a green campus,” says Matt McManness, vice president of finance and administration, La Salle University. “We are looking forward to realizing not only a reduction in costs, but in our energy footprint as well.”
