Overview of Case Study
UMMC is the academic medical center of the 13-hospital University of Maryland Medical System. The initial UMMC structure was built in 1937, and six additions from 1957 to 2013 have brought the facility’s floorspace to 2.5 million square feet.
Richie Stever, CHFM, CLSS-HC, UMMC’s director of operations and maintenance, did not have specific outcomes in mind for the treasure hunt. He saw the treasure hunt as a way to help UMMC reach its goal of reducing energy consumption by 20 percent by 2022 as part of the Better Buildings Challenge through the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE).
