The US General Services Administration wanted to optimize the 1970’s 18-story Edith Green-Wendell Wyatt Federal Building. Targeting an energy savings of 30% over ASRAE/IESNA Standard 90.1-2007 per the 2009 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) and a 55% reduction in fossil fuel energy over a Commercial Buildings Energy Consumption Survey (CBECS) baseline, the GSA and design team pursued an integrated design approach. | Read More

Two years ago, we wrote about Glumac’s Commissioning work at the University of Oregon Duck’s new 12,541-seat Matthew Knight Sports Arena in Eugene, Oregon. The project was designed by a world-class architectural and engineering team.

Clad in a new envelope of glass and steel with a sloping rooftop solar parasol, the Edith Green-Wendell Wyatt (EGWW) building bears little resemblance to the white concrete façade of the original 1970s building. Exterior shading and radiant systems provide excellent comfort and energy efficiency. But energy-optimized buildings can’t be handed over “as is” at completion and be expected to thrive. A year of post-occupancy commissioning proved key in transforming this federal building from an energy hog to a high performance workplace. | Read More
