Agency Achieves Significant Energy Savings with Zero Downtime

Rockville, MD - As part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, Forrester recently completed an $8M energy retrofit of a regional federal office and data center that was formerly GSA’s largest energy consumer. Hired as a design/builder, Forrester designed and constructed a more efficient mechanical and electrical infrastructure, featuring advanced sustainable technologies, that reduced the building’s energy use by 30% in the first year. These systems include a 255 kW rooftop photovoltaic solar array, 140 well geothermal system and a new high-efficiency chiller plant.

Work was performed while the building remained occupied on a 24/7 cycle, with no downtime to the data center.
