US Department of the Interior (DOI) Energy Study

The Department of the Interior’s (DOI) historic headquarters has remained operational during an extensive multi-phase renovation process. In addition to providing mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) engineering design for building systems, GHT completed an in-depth energy study encompassing analysis, modeling, and conservation.

The study provided a detailed analysis of several alternative HVAC systems, ultimately leading to the selection and implementation of a Dedicated Outdoor Air System (DOAS), one of the first such systems in the GSA portfolio and now a GSA standard. The studies also included an ADA accessibility study; CO2 analysis; and recommended upgrades to accommodate increased office automation.
