GHT Limited serves as the Base Building MEP engineer for Amazon’s new campus at Metropolitan Park in Arlington, Virginia. Amazon’s Arlington Campus includes the development of two new buildings, comprised of 2.2 million square feet of sustainable office space.
The campus’ mechanical system was constructed with a Dedicated Outdoor Air System (DOAS), a high-performance HVAC system that maximizes building energy efficiency and usable square footage. The LEED Platinum buildings will be powered by 100% off-site renewable energy, and on-site strategies will help minimize energy and water use.
GHT spearheaded the carbon + energy focus in the decision-making process for this development at Metropolitan Park, which will involve both energy use intensity (EUI) and life cycle carbon tracking.
