Case Study: Hennepin County 701 Building

Published in

Hennepin County, the most populated county in Minnesota, operates a massive portfolio of buildings covering most building types. They also have a goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions from their operations by 25% by 2025. As a result, they have undertaken significant energy retrofits over the past decade, with much effort focused on lighting retrofit. They recently investigated broader uses of smart building controls and were subsequently introduced to Slipstream’s integrated controls pilot. The County saw value in testing the integration of these different building systems and decided to apply the approach to one floor of a large building in downtown Minneapolis.
