U.S. Department of Energy, James Forrestal Building

Project Background

SitelogIQ executed a guaranteed energy service contract with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) through the ENABLE ESPC program to upgrade the existing lighting at the DOE headquarters building to LED technology throughout the complex. The U.S. Department of Energy selected SitelogIQ through its fast track program, ENABLE, to update the US DOE Headquarters, Forrestal Building in lighting to LED technology through an energy savings performance contract. The DOE ENABLE program allows federal facilities to capitalize on energy and water savings earlier than a traditional ESPC, by enabling contract award and construction to begin in approximately six months or less. After selection, SitelogIQ completed an in-depth energy study of the 1.8 million square foot facility to identify the detailed scope of work. Equipment samples from Philips Lighting that met the critical procurement and country of origin requirements of federal customers were installed for both the site staff and the General Services Administration to observe and approve the equipment selection. Construction and successful installation of 33,000 plus LED lights was completed during off-hours and in close coordination with site staff and security to minimize impact to the site’s 3,000 employees. This $2.1 M contract went from preliminary assessment to construction completion in 9 months. SitelogIQ guarantees the energy savings over the 13-year term.
