Oregon State Lottery
R&W provided energy services for Oregon State Lottery.
R&W provided energy services through the Energy Trust of Oregon and mechanical engineering services directly to the Oregon State Lottery for several recent upgrades to their central office in Salem, Oregon. Energy services were paid for by Energy Trust of Oregon and included a Technical Analysis Study that quantified electric and gas costs and savings for several building improvements, including: A modern, building wide HVAC digital control system and a high-efficiency server room HVAC system. The server room HVAC upgrade used a state-of-the-art refrigerant economizer system to take advantage of Oregon’s mild climate. This system provides “free” cooling for much of the year without compromising the server room air quality by using outside air. The Lottery has implemented the HVAC controls and server room HVAC upgrades recently and has plans to make the remaining upgrades, all with incentive assistance from Energy Trust of Oregon. R&W was able to use the information gained from the energy studies and move right into assistance with design and construction. R&W prepared performance build specifications for these upgrades, assisted in the bid opening and award, and verified that the final installation met specifications.
