Retrofit Construction in Tuscon, AZ


Tucson Commercial Firm Keeps it all In-House
When the owners of Tanque Verde Apartments in Tucson decided to upgrade mechanical systems, they made it clear that they wanted a dramatic shift from old to new. Until recently, the 15 acre, 428-unit complex has met the heating and cooling needs of the tenants, but with little regard for the amount of energy consumed in the process.

When the apartments were built 30 years ago, energy efficiency wasn’t exactly the main focus. After all, the price for gas and electricity was a fraction of today’s rate.

At Tanque Verde, an enormous district system heated and cooled all the apartments. Last year, the hydronic system began leaking underground. Tenants complained about lack of controllability while repair bills accumulated. Making matters worse, the equipment was outdated, bandaged and in desperate need of replacement.
