The Town of Woodbridge signed a $13.4 million contract, approved by
referendum in February 2014, with Energy Systems Group (ESG), a leading
energy services provider, for the implementation of comprehensive building
infrastructure renovations at Beecher Road School. ESG managed the
building upgrades which included energy conservation measures, mechanical
and controls upgrades, building envelope improvements, and security
enhancements. Most work was completed during two summers and in the
evenings to avoid disruption to the learning environment.
Strategies & Solutions
As the building systems at Beecher Road School dated back to the 1960s,
they were outdated, performing poorly, and beyond their useful life. The
sustainable infrastructure improvements implemented have significantly
enhanced the learning environment while making the school more energy
efficient and modernized. Major work completed through the project includes a
new roof on the A, B and C Wings, installation of 970 solar panels on the
school’s roof, new window walls in the A and B wings, as well as completion of
the new heating and air conditioning system, which provides central air to the
whole school.
