Coalition Provides Federal Buildings with Energy-Efficiency Recommendations

May 2009 - Energy Efficiency


The High Performance Building Congressional Caucus Coalition (HPBCCC) has issued recommendations designed to improve the energy performance of federal buildings.

A report from the coalition, Producing High-Performance Federal Buildings, comes as Congress is looking for measures to reduce energy use in federal facilities.

"These recommendations, if implemented through upcoming energy legislation, will provide an effective transition to reduced energy consumption, enhanced sustainability, improved building operation and maintenance, and more efficient use of national resources in the federal building stock,” says Doug Read, program director of government affairs for the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) and chair of the HPBCCC.

The recommendations include implementing:

•accurate life-cycle analysis and decision making for the acquisition of federal buildings

•total building commissioning

•integrated project delivery, including whole-building design, procurement, and construction

•building information modeling

•comprehensive education and training and higher levels of competence in the design, property management, operations and maintenance, and procurement communities

•the collection, storage, dissemination and use of data for building performance.
