Canopy Airport Parking Touts Cost Savings of Green Design

Greenscape Capital Group says that a study received from Architectural Energy Corporation relating to the projected cost savings resulting from the green design features incorporated at Canopy Airport Parking, which is a large 4,200 stall parking facility servicing the Denver International Airport, shows that the facility has projected total cost savings of 70% versus an ASHRAE baseline building.

Greenscape did not release data on the extra costs involved in installing the green elements – wind, solar, geothermal, etc. – or the ROI on such elements.

When completing the analysis, AEC compared Canopy to a baseline model facility having none of the efficiency components that Canopy has installed. AEC used eQuest (DOE – 2.2) building energy analysis software to complete this building analysis. The building envelope, occupancy schedule, internal heating systems, wind, solar, geothermal, and mechanical systems were all evaluated as part of this study.

The 70% total cost savings projected result from wall and roof insulation, mechanical system types, ground loop heat pumps that have an energy recovery system, lighting densities, and the integration of solar and wind energy sources along with geothermal heating and cooling.
