70% Cost Savings Predicted at Greenscape's Canopy Airport Parking in Denver, Colorado

Greenscape Capital Group Inc. ("Greenscape") is pleased to report on a study received from Architectural Energy Corporation ("AEC") relating to the projected cost savings resulting from the green design features incorporated at Canopy Airport Parking ("Canopy") which is a large 4,200 stall parking facility servicing the Denver International Airport.
When completing the analysis, AEC compared Canopy to a baseline model facility having none of the efficiency components that Canopy has installed. AEC used eQuest (DOE 2.2) building energy analysis software to complete this building analysis. The building envelope, occupancy schedule, internal heating systems, wind, solar, geothermal, and mechanical systems were all evaluated as part of this study.

AEC has determined that the Canopy facility has projected total cost savings of 70% versus an ASHRAE (American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Engineers) baseline building.

The 70% total cost savings projected result from wall and roof insulation, mechanical system types, ground loop heat pumps that have an energy recovery system, lighting densities, and the integration of solar and wind energy sources along with geothermal heating and cooling.

Greenscape CEO, Bryan Slusarchuk, states, "Greenscape's intent is to work with Propark to use Denver as a model for future green parking developments throughout North America. The study by AEC shows that making more responsible environmental decisions when constructing these facilities not only provides good marketing opportunities but also can provide very significant bottom line performance via cost savings. Canopy is the first parking lot of its kind anywhere in the world, it's a demonstrator site for green parking in the United States and we firmly believe that this type of lot is the facility of the future in the parking industry. Canopy is setting a new standard and as first movers in this space, along with our partners at Propark, we couldn't be more pleased with the results of this AEC study."
