Albany County Courthouse

Albany County Courthouse

Albany County – Laramie, Wyoming


The Albany County Courthouse is a four-story, 32,000-square-foot building located in Laramie, Wyoming. The building underwent a major renovation in 2005 that included replacing the mechanical systems and exterior windows.

This 2012 project provided energy enhancements and retro-commissioning for the 2005 renovation by optimizing the mechanical systems, updating and re-commissioning the building temperature controls, and replacing the building air-cooled chiller. Some of the energy efficiency enhancements included converting the heating and chilled water pumping systems to variable flow, updating the building temperature controls sequences and optimizing the building energy recovery ventilation system. This project exemplifies the importance of the retro-commissioning process for existing buildings. Not only did it increase the system performance and occupant comfort, but for minimal investment, it also saved energy and energy costs for the County.

St. Mary’s Cathedral

 St. Mary’s Cathedral



Cheyenne, Wyoming




The Cathedral of St. Mary, located in downtown Cheyenne, was constructed in 1909 and is the largest Gothic structure in Wyoming and an enduring symbol for Wyoming Catholics. In 2010 the interior of the sanctuary and nave were renovated, providing a beautiful and sacred place to worship.

The 2015 mechanical system upgrades project replaced the existing heating water system boilers and hydronic piping and added an air conditioning system to serve the front half of the nave. The key to the design for the new air conditioning system was to keep it out of sight from inside the nave to maintain the beauty and historic features of the building. The system was designed to allow future expansion to add air conditioning to the back half of the nave.
