University of Illinois:
Veterinary Medicine Complex
Urbana-Champaign, Illinois
Project Background
The University of Illinois Veterinary Medicine
Complex will undergo a transformation as
part of an innovative partnership between
campus Facilities and Services (F&S) and
Energy Systems Group (ESG), a leading
energy services company (ESCO) contracted
to develop and implement a comprehensive
energy-savings performance project.
The Vet Med ESCO project will achieve
energy and cost savings by improving
energy infrastructure and technology
and by modernizing facilities. The
changes will improve our facilities,
benefit the campus bottom line, and
make us more earth-friendly.
Once the project is completed, energy
consumption at Vet Med is projected to drop
by nearly 40%, and its carbon footprint will
be reduced by more than 17 million pounds
of carbon dioxide over the 18 year term of
the project. This is equivalent to one of the
following annual environmental benefits:
• Removing approximately 1,432 vehicles
from the road
• Planting about 2,144 acres of forest
Strategies & Solutions
The Vet Med Complex is located on the
south-end of the campus and consists
of the Basic Science Building (BSB),
the Teaching Hospital (VMTH) and the
Clinical Skills Learning Center (CSLC).
The Teaching Hospital is comprised
of two buildings joined together; the
Small Animal Clinic (SAC) and the Large
Animal Clinic (LAC). These four buildings
along with the Chiller Plant occupy just
over half a million gross square feet.
The project scope encompasses all the
buildings and includes the following
Energy Conservation Measures (ECMs):
• Lighting & Occupancy Sensors
• Duct cleaning
• Water conservation
• Piping system re-insulation
• Steam trap program
• Coil cleaning
• VFDs and motor replacements
• Refrigeration equipment heat recovery
• Doors and weather stripping
• Roofing
• VAV retrofit
• Fume hood upgrades
• Demand control ventilation
• AHU replacements & upgrades
• Chilled water variable flow
• Cooling replacement
Energy Consumption
Projected to be
Reduced by nearly 40%
