The Dauphin Island Sea Lab is posting a request for proposals for Guaranteed Energy Savings Contract Services.
The 35-acre campus is bordered by Mobile Bay to the north and the Gulf of Mexico to the south. The campus consists of 39 buildings including instructional buildings; family-style houses for visiting scientists and faculty; and research laboratory buildings. The overall condition of the facilities is good given the harsh environment. The age of the facilities ranges from the early 1940s and 1950s when it was a military base, to the Shelby Center which was built with a LEED Gold Certification in 2011.
Based on age and conditions, DISL recognizes the need for improvements with respect to some of the existing HVAC, controls, interior and exterior lighting, plumbing, electrical and other relevant buildings systems and infrastructure. DISL further recognizes the opportunity to improve the operational efficiency of various building systems through capital and operational improvements to generate utility and operational cost savings that can be leveraged to implement various improvements.
