Setty provided the first geothermal system for a DC housing development, designing the new M/E/P systems for seven modules. Extending our support, we also provided LEED Gold certification administration and fundamental and enhanced commissioning services, as well. The affordable housing project boasts energy savings of 25%, which will be shared with the residents (a first in the nation).
The MEP systems are based around geothermal wells for each of the seven buildings (117 total units). Some of the LEED strategies incorporated are high-performance heat pumps, geothermal well field, green roofs, occupancy sensors, demand-control bathroom ventilation, recycled materials, a super heater for the domestic hot water, and high-efficiency lighting well below code.
