Project Narrative:

Reynolds Energy Services was hired by the Juniata County School District to provide a guaranteed energy savings performance contract at East Juniata High School, Juniata High School and Tuscarora Junior High School.

In planning the project, the district tasked Reynolds with reviewing all major building systems and components, and upgrading or replacing them as cost-effectively as possible with the goal to provide another 20+ years of useful life for the facilities.

In doing so, Reynolds carefully evaluated the mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems in addition to the building envelope, and developed and implemented a project that met the district’s goals.

Schedule: Project completed on schedule

Budget: Project completed within budget

Savings: Performance period not begun

Additional Information:

Prior to selecting Reynolds, the district had a feasibility study completed that identified a similar project scope for the three buildings at a cost of nearly $40 million. Through a very comprehensive survey of the buildings, Reynolds developed a project that met the needs at less than half of the original estimated cost. Additionally, through the use of a guaranteed energy savings contract, the project was able to contribute nearly $5 million in energy savings to the overall budget; thus, reducing the impact on the district’s tax payers even further.

Information

The C.R. Reynolds group is a Hull based construction, plant hire and development company established in 1980. C.R. Reynolds have a broad portfolio of specialist works including award-winning projects in key areas of societal and environmental infrastructure.

C.R. Reynolds work under all forms of contract – traditional, design and build, and full turnkey, with values from £10,000 to £5,000,000 and upward.

Solution

Intrasource’s strategy and hosted services team worked with C.R. Reynolds to implement a solution to a specific problem. C.R. Reynolds required backups of laptops that stayed out of the business for extended periods of time. Due to the contract nature of C.R. Reynolds work, site managers may not visit the head office for several weeks.

Intrasource suggested our online backup platform to protect the laptops while they are out onsite. Online backups run every time the laptop has an internet connection, backing up crucial customer data to our primary datacentre in Leeds and then replicating that same data to Hessle.

Intrasource also implemented online backups on C. R. Reynolds main server at their head offices to ensure that they are completely protected.

Why we chose Intrasource

"We first approached Intrasource over 7 years ago looking for a server solution for our network. C.R. Reynolds had grown and our IT was beginning to need a company with a broad spread of technical expertise and somebody that we could trust to make the right IT decisions for our business."

Benefits

Neil says the main benefits of using Intrasource’s online backup platform are:-

  • Peace of mind when laptops are away from Head Office
  • All data is held securely in the UK
  • Local access to backup data if required
  • The backup and restore process is managed by Intrasource
