Denver Federal Center•One square mile campus•Former ordinance plant•26 Federal agencies•50 active buildings•6,200 employeesDirector’s Vision …“the most sustainablecampus in the country by 2020”…engineers | scientists | innovators

What are the sustainability drivers?Energy Policy Act (EPACT) of 2005• Energy efficiency and water conservation provisionsExecutive Order 13423• Environmental performance goalsEnergy Independence and Security Act (EISA) of2007• Increase energy efficiency and the availability ofrenewable energy and decrease U.S. dependence onoil• Reduce energy consumption by 3% per year FY06-15engineers | scientists | innovators

Sustainable Design StandardsGSA commitment toLEED• All government ownednew construction andmajor renovationprojects must be LEEDcertified with a goal ofSilver• All new lease construction projects(over 10,000 sq. ft.) must achieve aLEED Silver ratingengineers | scientists | innovators
