Jun 19, 2018

This entry contains a link to a detailed case study published by the Whole Building Design Guide.

The project, completed in July, 1998, is located in the Washington Navy Yard, an historic district in Washington, DC, and included complete renovation of four existing historic industrial structures and construction of one new linking structure for office, conference, and support spaces. The project consists of an "L" shaped main building linked to a cluster of three smaller courtyard buildings. he existing buildings had been large, open manufacturing facilities, so extensive remodeling was required. A small "lean-to" building attached to Building 33 was demolished, which enhanced the daylighting opportunities. The demolition waste was recycled to the fullest extent possible.
