A Practical Solution to Budget Reduction

Objectives

425 Westchester Ave was a unique case for KLIMA. On top of ongoing challenges faced by the client, KLIMA was also tasked with budget reduction. The project was previously specified with alternative equipment but was ultimately over the allotted budget. Thus, the mission at 425 Westchester Ave became a two-fold problem — ultimately requiring a dynamic approach to resolution.

Problems

The property located at 425 Westchester Ave was plagued by a number of ongoing challenges, but the main problem centered around this property dealt with budgeting. The job was previously designed by an engineer, but was over budget. Ultimately, the owner requested a simplified solution that was both cost effective and more efficient.

Solutions

One of the biggest solutions to reduce the budget came through the rebate from the utilities KLIMA was afforded, which gave us ownership to use our VRF equipment.  Klima ultimately handled the application, worked with Con Edison, and crafted a custom rebate to get the owner a substantial amount of money back from the utility.  This revenue assisted in keeping the project on budget for the client.

Benefits

  • Fortified KLIMA’s design-engineering relationship
  • Demonstrated KLIMA’s construction aptitude — showing off company-wide system solutions inclusive of turn-key controls.
  • Allowed KLIMA to capitalize on our diverse equipment and controls offering, thus growing our company footprint
