Design and Consulting Services
Whether working on new construction or improving an existing structure, NCAT can help design a state-of-the-art green facility that uses resources wisely, is energy-efficient, and is cost effective.
For example, the NCAT energy team helped develop a grant application for the Butte School District No. 1 for the Quality School Facility Grant Program. NCAT energy engineers created eQUEST energy simulation models to estimate the energy savings expected from installing energy efficient boilers and windows throughout the district. The energy team also evaluated the efficiency of completing the district-wide lighting retrofit project. As a result of the grant application, the Butte School District received over $350,000 in funds for energy improvements.
The energy team also worked with the Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) to perform an energy audit of the Semitool facility in Kalispell, Montana.
