Project Overview

Supporting the Darrington School District with lighting control upgrades to support annual cost savings.

Services Performed
  • Darrington, WA

Located in the foothills of the Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest, Darrington School District set out to upgrade their lighting and controls systems. UMC provided a complete design-build solution that included self-performed mechanical and electrical work.

Lighting upgrades included energy-efficient upgrades to LED for both interior and exterior fixtures as well as new efficient controls.

A new centralized Building Automation System (BAS) was integrated into the facility to provide more efficient operation of systems and equipment; both on-site and with remote internet access. This new BAS was coupled with an energy-based retro-commissioning program to get the systems running at peak effectiveness.

Darrington is an amazingly beautiful community with a top-notch school Administration team. It’s only fitting that they have excellent energy systems to match!
