Transforming a White House Parking Garage: Integrated Sustainability and Energy Performance Case Study
Approved for 1 AIA LU
1222 22nd Street NW is a 58,000 square foot building that underwent a complete transformation from a parking garage for the White House into a creative loft office space. The project team set ambitious sustainability goals and outlined a development plan that breathed new life into this urban setting by providing LEED consulting, energy modeling and comprehensive building commissioning services.
The presenters will share how operational and embodied carbon reductions were obtained to earn a LEED Gold building certification. The project design was faced with many challenges associated with the existing building infrastructure and limited scope. Through an integrated design process and early-design energy modeling, the project team was able to effectively optimize the building design using a high-efficiency HVAC system coupled with a high-performance enclosure and lighting system. Join this webinar to hear the lessons learned from 1222 22nd Street.
