1 Innovation for Higher Education Raising performance across college and university campuses

2 Engineering campus solutions Day in and day out, colleges and universities face a diverse set of challenges: Effective learning environments require comfortable facilities. A green campus requires sustainable energy solutions. Stressed operating budgets need relief, and energy costs provide the greatest opportunity for savings. Trane offers campus-wide solutions that save energy and money while creating ideal conditions for learning. Optimize environments for living and learning Less obvious than bricks and mortar, but equally important, indoor environmental quality (IEQ) is essential to creating the high performance facilities that attract and retain top students and faculty. Effective classrooms Research continues to provide proof that the environment inside the classroom correlates strongly to student and teacher performance. Numerous studies have established links between classroom and workplace performance and environmental factors such as air flow, lighting, humidity and temperature. The solutions that are provided by Trane to manage these influential environmental factors are now essential to the learning environment. Our indoor environmental control systems enable the precise management of temperature and humidity levels to optimize learning conditions in classrooms all over campus. 2 Innovation for Higher Education

3 Safe and productive labs Perhaps nowhere on campus is it more critical to maintain precise environmental conditions than within your scientific research labs. Sensitive instruments and meticulous experiments can require the precisely controlled temperature, humidity and filtration levels that are possible with Trane. Our advanced ventilation and air filtration technologies provide reliable solutions for labs that operate under regulations for safe air quality. Built-in flexibility makes it easy to modify HVAC system operating parameters to meet frequently-changing applications and requirements. Comfortable on-campus living Upgrading on-campus living and recreational facilities is a critical component of attracting top students. Trane offers innovative and energyefficient ways to improve indoor air quality (IAQ) and provide reliable temperature control in residence halls and student union buildings wherever students gather in large numbers or close quarters. Trane uses pre-engineered control strategies and technologies that ensure large spaces are properly ventilated, while minimizing the amount of energy used. Trane controls optimize comfort and your campus carbon footprint. oxidation (PCO) process which captures, sterilizes and vaporizes biological organisms and reduces odors to ensure clean, fresh air. Athletic facilities Trane addresses some of the biggest facility challenges on campus: Swimming pools, ice arenas and locker rooms are prime areas for poor air quality and mold growth. And massive spaces, such as gymnasiums, arenas and indoor stadiums require high-efficiency climate control systems that maintain comfort without breaking the budget. Libraries and museums The preservation and safekeeping of priceless artwork, historical artifacts and irreplaceable documents requires precise humidity and temperature control. Trane supports your role as the keeper of history and legacy. CDQ dessicant dehumidification from Trane keeps building cool and dry. Its quiet operation makes it an ideal technology for areas that require reliable humidity control and minimal noise distraction, including libraries, museums and galleries. Additionally, the Trane Catalytic Air Cleaning System (TCACS) added to air handlers serving residence halls can deliver clean, fresh air to living quarters. TCACS uses a one-of-a-kind blend of three technologies filtration, germkilling ultraviolet light and a photocatalytic 3

4 Campus sustainability Sustainability meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs is a natural objective for college and university campuses. Today s students will have to deal firsthand with the consequences of unsustainable practices, and many are taking a stand. A growing number of prospective students take a school s approach to sustainability into consideration when deciding which school to attend. Trane is an active participant in policy-setting organizations, including the U.S. Green Building Council, American College and University Presidents Climate Commitment (ACUPCC), and the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE). We can support your campus sustainability goals. Trane has over 700 LEED Accredited Professionals and vast experience designing energy-efficient solutions for the multi-building campus. With our state-of-the-art analysis tools, HVAC systems and knowledge, Trane is uniquely qualified to help colleges and universities finetune energy and indoor environmental strategies, incorporating alternative energy sources such as geothermal and cogeneration. Green Campus A green campus is a higher education community that is improving energy efficiency, conserving resources and enhancing environmental quality by educating for sustainability and creating healthy living and learning environments. U.S. Green Building Council 4 Innovation for Higher Education

5 EarthWise chiller system designs are over 13 percent more energy efficient than traditional systems. Trane Building Services provides the means to maintain and document ongoing system performance. Reduce carbon emissions Discussions about environmental impact inevitably focus on carbon emissions that are attributable to energy use. Direct your attention and resources where they can have the greatest impact: HVAC-related systems account for 40 to 60 percent of energy use on a typical campus. Systems that are just a few years old may be lagging behind current standards for energy efficiency. By conducting a thorough energy audit and analysis, Trane can identify problem areas and recommend specific improvement actions for reducing energy consumption. The good news: saving energy saves money, and the cost of upgrades is frequently offset by energy cost savings over the long run. Tap into renewable energy Renewable energy resources are becoming increasingly viable as the solution to a carbon neutral campus. Trane technologies enable the use of geothermal and cogeneration energy, as well as wind power solar energy and biogas to generate electricity for heating and cooling systems. Initiate a Climate Action Plan Trane has the expertise to implement your green initiatives. With over 700 LEED Accredited Professionals on staff, Trane can bring our collective knowledge about how to reduce carbon footprint through high performance buildings to your campus. Share results to build engagement The Campus Green Dashboard brings visibility to your sustainability efforts, and helps get students, faculty, staff and people in the surrounding community involved. This easy-to-use, visual computer tool lets you share detailed information on the energy use of buildings on campus, including historical data that demonstrates environmental progress. Students can use the information to create competitions between campus buildings to encourage energy reduction practices. Administrators and facility managers can use it to monitor and report campus energy performance. As a sponsor of the ACUPCC, Trane understands the complexities involved a campus-wide Climate Action Plan. We can help you develop and deliver on your plan. Innovation for sustainable schools As further commitment to sustainability, the Trane parent company, Ingersoll Rand, has launched the Center for Energy Efficiency and Sustainability (CEES), an organization that is dedicated to accelerating the pace of environmentally sustainable innovation. 5

6 Optimizing resources Energy is one of the single largest line items in a typical campus operations and maintenance (O&M) budget, costing millions of dollars every year. Whether you re looking for ways to stabilize tuition, or seeking additional resources for core campus initiatives, reducing energy costs is a constructive place to start. By applying sustainable design and construction practices, and implementing predictive service and maintenance programs, Trane has helped higher education institutions save 10 to 20 percent on utility costs annually for new buildings; 15 to 30 percent for renovated buildings. Reduce energy costs Virtually any action taken to reduce operating costs by reducing energy spending is a sound financial decision. Energy conservation measures (ECMs) implemented by Trane can literally transform an operating budget producing shortand long-term cost savings to free up dollars for better use. A campus-wide energy audit conducted by Trane engineers can help you identify the best opportunities to reduce energy costs. During the analysis, Trane uses industry-leading TRACE 700 energy and economic analysis software, which can help document compliance with ASHRAE Standard 90.1 and validate the building s eligibility for LEED certification. Optimize operational spending (Campus Transformation) It is an ongoing dilemma: Budget constraints make it seem virtually impossible to catch up on deferred maintenance. Meanwhile, aging buildings and infrastructure cost so much to maintain and operate, there is never money left for improvements that would alleviate the problems once and for all. Trane helps colleges and universities break the never-ending cycle of unproductive spending through our Campus Transformation approach. Based on a campus-wide analysis that considers operations and maintenance spending, the capital budget and more, Trane identifies deep opportunities for cost savings. The dollars saved can then be reallocated to establish a capital transformation fund. 6 Innovation for Higher Education

7 Curriculum support The future is full of promise for students who want to pursue careers in energy-related fields. Engineering Better Careers, Engineering Better Environments program connects senior executives with college engineering students looking to make a difference in the built environment, today. Designed to engage students in the issues important to their careers like the environment, energy use and business ethics, it also creates experiences for students that better prepare them for the business world including sponsoring clubs, events, internships and limited scholarships as well as providing software and lab equipment at reduced rates Performance contracting Many colleges and universities rely on a paid-from-savings approach to fund facilities upgrades. Trane recommends and implements specific energy conservation measures, and guarantees projected energy cost savings. If at any time during the contract the calculated energy cost savings produced by facilities upgrades are less than the guaranteed amount, Trane will pay the difference. Trane executives will visit your campus to share information and insights about real world engineering and business issues and the impact that engineering students can have today. We also support students and faculty by enriching engineering curriculum and creating clubs that encourage experiential learning. We may also provide energy analysis software and lab equipment at a low and reduced cost, and offer student internships. Space optimization Changing trends in both curriculum and campus living often require the redistribution or renovation of campus facilities. Spaces currently being used for one purpose must be transformed to suit something completely different. Trane professionals can collaborate with facility managers on campus to plan and implement upgrades to assure that indoor climate conditions are suitable for the new application.
