The International Spy Museum at L’Enfant Plaza – Washington, D.C.

Owner: The Malrite Company
Client: Hickok Cole Architects
Anticipated LEED BD+C: New Construction v2009 Certified

The International Spy Museum at L’Enfant Plaza is the only public museum in the United States solely dedicated to espionage and the only one in the world to provide a global perspective on an all-but-invisible profession that has shaped history.  Not only are the exhibits engaging and the experience is interactive, but the building is also sustainable.  With education of all museum visitors as a primary goal for the Spy Museum, a decision was made very early on in design to incorporate as much environmental and sustainable public education as possible.  Terraces and vegetated areas will integrate with programmable space while seamlessly tying in sustainable strategies for patrons to enjoy.  With seven floors of tall ceilings, a primary facade system of glass curtain wall, and a cantilevered feature with a curved glass enclosure, a highly efficient HVAC system will be selected for optimization of the building’s energy.

 

Eisenhower Fire Station – Alexandria, VA

Owner: City of Alexandria
Client: WGM Architects
LEED NCv2009 Silver

Eisenhower Fire Station is one of the first fire stations in Virginia to use a geothermal water source heat pump system. The vertical wells are located on-site under the parking lot. The Fire Station has 6 apparatus bays, residential facilities for the on call fire fighters, as well as a large space for the community to use. The project site sits on an old car impound lot, which was remediated prior to construction beginning on the new station. Not only does this project use geothermal, but is paired with very efficient mechanical equipment to maximize energy savings for the building. The project has also incorporated low flow water fixtures to reduce the amount of potable water used in the building. Case Study
