Motili Brings Sustainable HVAC to Student Housing – Westmar Lofts

Motili a real-estate technology company, today announced that it is working with Cardinal Group to complete an energy-efficiency upgrade project at Westmar Lofts, a modern student housing community located near Georgia Tech in Atlanta, Georgia. The project consists of a comprehensive retrofit of the facilitys entire Heating/Ventilation/Air Conditioning system, servicing close to 400 apartment homes. Cardinal Group is leading the industry with the installation of one of the most sustainable and energy-efficient HVAC systems available today.

HVAC is the number one consumer of energy in the commercial building space, and Westmar is installing a highly energy efficient 16 SEER, 3 SEER higher than required by the Georgia Energy Code. This project will also qualify for utility rebates from Georgia Power for installation of the state-of-the-art system.

Cardinal Group also installed new LED lighting throughout the entire property, and high efficiency water fixtures in the resident apartments, to unlock additional savings in electric and water.

We looked to Motili for this project because of their expertise in large scale, turn-key HVAC projects in occupied spaces, said Andrew Ellis, Senior Project Manager at Cardinal Group. Motili was able to bring together a turn-key project that exceeded our investment criteria, and delivered on our commitment to bring a sustainable living environment to our communities and valued residents.

Westmar expects the new HVAC installation to pay back on energy savings in under 5 years. Typically, HVAC retrofit ROI has a 10 year horizon.
