Pathfinder's Latest Zero Net Energy Project

June 29, 2016 | 11:10am

leaf_house_1.gifPathfinder is providing energy services for a new Zero Net Energy residence to be constructed in Stephentown, NY. Pathfinder's energy modeling will inform early design decisions by evaluating impacts and optimizing energy consumption associated with design considerations, including:

  • Site conditions, floor plan options, massing and orientation
  • Building envelope options including insulation and glazing
  • Passive solar energy strategies
  • Heating and cooling systems
  • Ventilation and human comfort

The home will be sited and designed with accommodation for a solar PV system to generate as much energy as is used annually in the home.

Boiler Decentralization Achieving High Efficiency Thumbnail

Boiler Decentralization Achieving High Efficiency

February 15, 2016 | 10:21am

Our boiler design for SUNY Binghamton's East Campus Housing is achieving 90-95% efficiency. 

Pathfinder provided mechanical, electrical, plumbing and architectural design for decentralization from the campus boiler plant for the complex (Newing and Dickinson communities), which includes eight dormitory buildings and the Chenango Champlain Collegiate Center. The dormitories total 740,000 sq. ft. and the Collegiate Center is 200,000. ft. The project includes installation of new modular, gas-fired, hot water boiler plants with the capacity to serve the two existing central distribution heating systems for the two communities. This allows the University the capability to heat East Campus Housing with … Read More.
