Abstract : Data from earlier USACERL research that applied energy conservation retrofits to standard Army building types indicated that the retrofits were undermined by less than optimal building operations. This report documents follow-up work to measure the effect of improved building operations on one of the retrofit buildings, an L-shaped barracks. The results indicate that fuel savings from improved operations nearly equaled fuel savings resulting from the initial retrofit. Specific steps for improving operations are outlined, and it is recommended that the improvements implemented for this building be applied to other similarly constructed and operated buildings....
