Balfour Beatty Communities Named 2021 Motili Carbon Reduction Champion

MALVERN, PA --- March 16, 2022 --- Balfour Beatty Communities, a national residential real estate investment and management company, today announced it has been named a 2021 Motili Carbon Reduction Champion for reducing its emissions through HVAC upgrades completed across its military housing portfolio in 2021. Balfour Beatty Communities replaced HVAC systems in more than 1,200 military housing units, improving system performance while driving energy savings and lower carbon emissions.

In 2020, Balfour Beatty Communities partnered with Motili to provide routine HVAC maintenance, repair and replacement work across the company’s military housing portfolio. The HVAC replacements provide important operational efficiencies and are expected to reduce energy use by almost 25%, significantly cutting the carbon emissions from each unit. The total carbon emission reduction per year equates the weight of approximately 568 elephants or 229,972 gallons of gas.
