Sustainability Problem and Proposed Solution: 

By maximizing the efficiency through retrofits and minor renovations, much of the energy used in lighting and heating the Porter Study Center (PSC) can be diverted elsewhere, or conserved. The tools to vastly improve the energy efficiency of buildings exist, yet many remain unaware. Thus by retrofitting PSC, we aim to both reduce the total energy consumption and eliminate waste, and to promote sustainability in building science through the finished product.
