Columbia University's Knox Hall is a facility that includes classrooms, faculty offices, graduate student lounges and open offices.  The professionals of Vidaris provided comprehensive sustainable design consulting services for both energy-efficiency measures and environmentally-responsible architectural measures.  Their role followed the project from conceptual design phases through construction, including commissioning of MEP systems.   Energy efficiency measures resulted in 23% lower energy costs than ASHRAE-required, per DOE-2 simulations.   The professionals of Vidaris began work on this project while part of another company.
