The project team, composed of GSA representatives, the design team and the CMGC team evaluated various energy efficient features for the renovation. Several examples included studies related to the building envelope, photovoltaic systems, grey water systems, stormwater storage, and hydronic systems vs standard HVAC. This project was completed using Integrated Project Delivery and leveraging building information modeling, and is now considered one of the most energy efficient office buildings in the country.
