MALVERN, PA — Balfour Beatty Communities announced it was recently named a 2021 Motili Carbon Reduction Champion for reducing its emissions through HVAC upgrades completed across its military housing portfolio in 2021. Balfour Beatty Communities replaced HVAC systems in more than 1,200 military housing units, improving system performance while driving energy savings and lower carbon emissions.
In 2020, Balfour Beatty Communities partnered with Motili to provide routine HVAC maintenance, repair and replacement work across the company’s military housing portfolio. The HVAC replacements provide important operational efficiencies and are expected to reduce energy use by almost 25%, significantly cutting the carbon emissions from each unit. The total carbon emission reduction per year equates the weight of approximately 568 elephants or 229,972 gallons of gas.
“We are honored to be recognized as a Motili Carbon Reduction Champion for our efforts to improve the sustainable performance of our HVAC units and deliver an exceptional experience to our residents,” said Rick Taylor, President Facility Operations, Renovation & Construction, Balfour Beatty Communities. “At Balfour Beatty Communities, we believe a rigorous preventive maintenance program is critical to ensuring our homes are comfortable and HVAC systems operate effectively over the long-term. We remain enthusiastic about our partnership with Motili and look forward to continuing the positive momentum in 2022.”
“Working with Balfour Beatty Communities has been rewarding and we applaud their commitment to sustainability. The Balfour Beatty team put significant effort into reducing its HVAC-generated carbon footprint in 2021,” said Matthew Sallee, Vice President, Business Development, Motili. “We are happy to again name Balfour Beatty a Motili Carbon Reduction Champion, for the second year in a row.”
