About the ECRP

Existing city retrofit is a research project seeking to quantify the potential financial, environmental, and social benefits that building owners can achieve through shared (rather than isolated) thermal system overhauls with their neighbors. As a pilot, the project seeks to do this at a single system level (chilled and/or condenser water) at a finite scale (2 to 4 neighboring buildings) in a real existing urban fabric (downtown San Francisco).

Despite the fact that building owners execute major MEP overhauls for the same reasons, they do so in complete isolation within individual buildings. As a result, additional benefits that could be realized at a multi-building scale are foregone. Existing city retrofit is a project that seeks to generate the data required to document the business case for such shared community MEP overhauls.
