Audit components included efficiency analysis, estimating energy savings, capital expenses, and tracking progress of energy conservation measures.

The initial audit and improvement implementation identified energy and cost savings of roughly 30%. M&E also completed the related construction documents and consulted with DeFeo Associates.
