Abstract : IES Engineers was contracted by the Savannah District of the US Army Corps of Engineers in July 1986 to perform a complete energy audit and analysis of forty-three dining facilities at Fort Bragg, North Carolina. The essential elements of the Scope of Work (SOW) are listed below. The majority of the buildings are permanent structures with a remaining useful life of over 25 years. Five of the buildings are temporary structures which are expected to remain in use for at least ten years. The project consisted of detailed audits of twenty dining facilities and 'walk-through' audits of the remaining twenty three buildings. Per the SOW, the Building Loads Analysis and Systems Thermodynamics (BLAST) computer program was used to simulate existing energy consumption and to evaluate energy conservation opportunities (ECOs) in the buildings receiving detailed audits. 'Walk-through' audits were then performed on the remaining buildings in order to determine which of the previously identified ECOs could be duplicated.
