Allana Buick & Bers (ABBAE) was retained by E&S Ring Management to provide evaluation and investigation services for an existing residential complex in Los Angeles.
ABBAE evaluated and investigated the existing solar hot water system to determine cost performance and effectiveness. The client was in the process of performing roof replacement and repairs and wanted to ensure the longevity of the existing system before re-installing it. It was determined that once placement of the control sensor for the solar collectors was correctly placed, the system would outlast the life expectancy of the proposed new roof and provide well over 50% cost savings in both water and natural gas.
Casa Granada is a four-acre residential resort that consists of four 3-story buildings and one 2-story building.
