Grandview Heights Public Library Improves Patron Comfort
In 2016, Grandview Heights Public Library partnered with Dynamix Engineering and Dynamix Energy Services to complete a Facility Assessment and an Energy Audit. The Facility Assessment allowed the Library to identify upcoming facility infrastructure requirements and develop a plan to address the improvements over the next 10 + years. In addition, the Energy Audit identified opportunities to reduce energy consumption along with decreasing maintenance costs.
Over the past few years, the Library has completed various Facility Infrastructure Projects and Energy Conservation Measures. Through these investments, Grandview Height Public Library has reduced energy consumption by 33%.
The recent installation of a new chiller is just one example.

About Dynamix Energy Services
Dynamix Energy Services (DES) is a full service, vendor-neutral Energy Services Company that focuses on implementing and installing creative, well-engineered solutions to our customers. Our team consists of Professional Engineers from multiple backgrounds including HVAC, Electrical, Controls, Technology and Plumbing. This diversity allows us to maximize the energy and maintenance savings for our customers by looking at opportunities from all angles.
Over the course of five years, Dynamix Energy Services’ substantial energy overhaul at the Delaware Area Career Center has resulted in savings of over $1-million for the center – and the number continues to grow.
The Project Scope
In early 2014, Dynamix Energy Services completed a guaranteed Energy Project for the two DACC Campuses. This project reduced the school’s utility expenses while improving its air quality and comfort for students and staff. Work for the $2.4 million project, which took five months to complete, included:
Upgrading lighting systems
Replacing nine rooftop units
Installing non-proprietary utility controls in two buildings
Designing easy-to-use graphical interface for equipment and space controls
Adding adjustable room sensors, air quality monitoring sensors, supplemental sensors, and new variable speed drives on specific pieces of equipment
Removing old HVAC units
The project featured a guaranteed annual savings of $150,553, and in the first year alone, DACC saw an energy cost savings of more than $200,000. As of January 2019, those savings have climbed to over $1 million.
“In my experience, it is rare for an energy services company to achieve the level of savings that they guarantee during sales presentations. Dynamix Energy Services not only met and exceeded their guarantee, they completed the project three months early which meant our energy savings and our building comfort levels began sooner than expected. The equipment interface is very simple to use so maintaining comfort levels and maximizing energy savings is as easy as it gets.” Jack Higgins, Director of Operations, DACC
Continued Work with DACC
2016 the Career Center decided to consolidate two buildings into one and
increasing the size of their South Campus to 224,988 sq. ft.. They
chose Dynamix to partner with them to design and coordinate the installation of
the new HVAC equipment and controls, as well as, provide their commissioning
expertise (called “Controls as a
Professional Services”) during the installation phase. This ensured that the new building addition
operated at peak efficiency on the first day of occupancy, and seamlessly
coordinated as one HVAC control system throughout the old and new phases.
Since 2014, DACC has continued to utilize our Technical Services Program, and has also enrolled in our PLC/Capacity Management Program for continued energy efficiencies and savings. The center has seen a reduction of 30%-50% in its energy consumption, and received one year of monitoring and optimization after completion.
“Congratulations to Delaware Area Career Center on exceeding the $1 million savings milestone. Our team values the partnership we have with DACC and we are proud of the accomplishments of this endeavor. With DACC opting for Controls as a Professional Service for the delivery method of the new consolidated building, their investment will continue paying off in Energy Savings.” Sean Weber, Vice President Energy and Controls Project, Dynamix Energy Services

As part of a District Wide Energy Conservation Project in the Reynoldsburg City Schools, the High School Football Field received new LED Lights. The Lighting was installed on four of the five existing poles. Each of the four poles, now has a quantity of 13 – 1,150 watt LED Lamps on pole along with a quantity of 2 -575 watt LED Lamps up-lights per pole to be able to track the ball. Each of the four poles now have a quantity of thirteen – 1,150 watt LED Lamps, along with two – 575 watt LED Lamps up-lights that help players track the ball. Energy usage will reduced by 57.1 KW.
Some of the features of this new Lighting System include:
A computer application allows the District to create schedules to match athletic events.
The District utilizes a mobile app to shut off the lights.
LED Lights provide a sharp cut-off, which eliminates light spillage. The light is now focused exactly where it should be, on the field.
Musco’s Total Light Control provides better visibility for the players and spectators. Players enjoy a field view in higher definition and can track the entire flight of the ball.
These components make for a state-of-the-art stadium for Reynoldsburg Athletes.
