    The RMH Group has maintained its offices at the Golden Hill Office Center since the three-building, 209,000 SF facility’s construction in 1983. RMH was the facility’s original mechanical/electrical engineer and, more recently, served as Golden Hill’s LEED for Existing Buildings (LEED-EB) consult­ant. As the LEED-EB consult­ant, RMH was responsible for developing LEED goals, facilitating meetings, providing technical guidance, and coordinating LEED documentation. Golden Hill recently attained LEED-EB Silver certification. The RMH Group also provided design to integrate three roof-mounted 10 kW photovoltaic arrays into the facility’s exist­ing electri­cal system. In addition to design, RMH served as the owner’s representative and pursued rebates and incentives that reduced capital costs for the arrays by 64%. Internet users can observe current and historical performance data of the photovoltaic arrays. RMH has been involved with a variety of other recent sustainable design upgrades to Golden Hill including:
    • Replacement of pneumatic controls with Honeywell Tritium DDC building automation controls with energy dashboard
    • Re-piping of the cooling towers, new indirect cooling coil, and new pump to lower pumping horsepower and to increase cooling capacity
    • Replacement of five existing boilers with one 95%-efficient condensing boiler and two supplemental non-condensing boilers (87% efficient) with stand-alone boiler controller
    • Replacement of two heating water pumps with more efficient pumps and motors
    • Upgrade/replacement of VAV box controls and actuators in Building A with new digital controls and electric actuators
    • Low-flow plumbing fixtures (water closets, urinals, lavatory faucets, showers)
    • New temperature sensors with occupant adjustment
    • Replacement of all controls valves with electric valves
    • LED lighting in suites A-300 and A-400 (RMH’s offices) with N-Light controls and sonar-based occupancy sensors
    • Electric vehicle charging station
    • Power monitoring for office suites A-300 and A-400 (RMH’s offices)
