The Safford Memorial Shelter is a major renovation and addition to create a comfortable high-performance animal shelter for the Animal Rescue League of Boston. Integrating energy modeling early into the design phase allowed the design team to identify measures with the highest energy impacts. A number of technologies were investigated, including ground source heat pumps, radiant-floor heating, solar-assisted hot water, energy recovery, natural ventilation, and tempered dedicated outside air.
