This paper seeks to develop a framework for the successful implementation of energy retrofit projects in all settings, including those with the non-traditional structure and unique needs of some non-profit organizations. This will be accomplished using researched strategies for overcoming commonly associated challenges along with experiences gained through a real-life case study involving a multi-facility retrofit project in Atlanta's largest public park, Chastain Park. The framework includes the application of research based solutions for common challenges as well as specific strategies for the translation of collected data into an actual scope of work, methods for the collection of bids and selection of contractor(s), the importance of and methods for communicating amongst stakeholders, and the need for a dedicated project manager on site at all times.
