Project Details

The design team was selected to participate in this Pilot Project as part of the Army Reserve Energy Reduction Initiative. The primary objectives were to investigate what was required to achieve the “next level” of energy reduction, to achieve LEED® Gold and to explore the possibility of Platinum certification, and to explore integrating of renewable energy opportunities. The process included the standard project design charette, but added a sustainability charette, and then coordinated efforts to optimize the building’s sustainability performance. The resulting project will achieve net-zero energy performance by including a 427 kW photovoltaic array.
