ABM’s Bundled Energy Solutions Program Helps Client Reallocate $5.5 Million To Fund Critical Renovations

ABM (NYSE:ABM), a leading provider of integrated facility solutions, announced its ABM Building Solutions division has been selected to partner once again with the Madison County, GA School District to improve its K-12 educational learning environments through ABM’s Bundled Energy Solutions Program. The initiative will allow for critical infrastructure improvements of the schools through an estimated $5.5 million in energy and operational cost savings.

ABM’s Bundled Energy Solutions Program has been designed as a financial solution to meet clients’ technical facility needs. ABM’s goal is to drive costs out of clients’ operating budgets in a manner that allows them to reallocate funding for other facility enhancements.

The deal marks the third time in 11 years the Madison County Schools have elected to partner with ABM Building Solutions. The major renovations, which will coincide with the beginning of the 2012-13 school year, are expected to be completed and new equipment installed and operational by August of this year. Total synchronization of the buildings’ control systems will be finished by October.

“ABM has been instrumental in Madison County Schools’ plan to maintain efficient and functioning HVAC systems as well as lighting within our schools,” said Dr. Allen McCannon, Superintendent of Madison County Schools. “Without their products and service, as well as financial solutions, it would have been impossible for us to accomplish all that we have. We look forward to continuing a long, extended relationship with ABM.”

In addition to saving energy for the district’s four elementary schools, the project will also focus on improving indoor environmental quality within the buildings, including comfort conditions, lighting levels and outside air ventilation. The schools will be retrofitted with new high-efficiency HVAC systems, high performance lighting technologies, high-efficiency water source heat pumps and an energy management control system. At Colbert Elementary, a new high-efficiency heat pump loop boiler will be installed, which is expected to be 25% more efficient than the existing boiler.
