Dormitories Case study


Dormitories – An ivy league University

An ivy league University received a $5 million grant from the Department of Energy to improve the energy efficiency of its dormitories.

NTG’s Tax Credits & Incentives consulting practice provided a wide range of services to a leading global architecture and engineering firm. The firm designed energy-efficient systems and buildings for federal, state, and local properties. NTG’s team recommended conducting energy certification studies to help the firm qualify for the IRC Section 179D commercial buildings energy efficiency tax deduction for all it’s projects.

Energy efficiency improvements:
The grant was used to fund a variety of energy efficiency improvements, including:

  • Installing new windows and insulation
  • Replacing the heating and cooling systems
  • Installing LED lighting
  • Upgrading the dormitories’ energy management system

179D tax deduction:
The dormitories estimate that they will save over $2 million on energy costs as a result of these improvements.

NTG’s success in this area is due to their understanding of complex construction and design projects. The team performs a high degree of due diligence and works with a variety of government authorities to expedite the approval process. This ensures that their clients receive the maximum possible benefit from the 179D program.
