Naval Research Laboratory Renovation of Building 74/81

The Naval Research Laboratory Renovation of Building 74/81 is one of many Department of Defense construction projects that comply with the federally mandated High Performance and Sustainable Building (HPSB) Guiding Principles Validation (GPV) requirements, as well as achieve LEED certification, with a minimum of a LEED Silver level, under the LEED v3 2009 Building Design and Construction (BD+C) rating system for New Construction.


Our Approach

This project consisted of 30,000 square feet two-story construction and renovation of the two connected Buildings 74 and 81, known as the Naval Research Laboratory in Washington, DC owned by the Naval Facilities Engineering Command, Washington. Straughan Environmental worked as the sustainability consultant to support the contractor in tracking, and documenting HPSB and LEED requirements towards HPSB Guiding Principles Validation compliance and LEED certification requirements. HPSB Guiding Principles were tracked concurrently with LEED credit requirements, most of which were met through the more stringent LEED credit documentation requirements.

Straughan developed key Sustainability deliverables including the Sustainability Action Plan and Construction Indoor Air Quality Management Plan to guide the process for implementing and achieving project sustainability goals throughout construction and post-occupancy. Closeout Submittals will be prepared and submitted at substantial completion and post-construction to achieve the final LEED Silver Certification award.
