USTR's Winder Building Undergoes Green Building Measures for Energy Conservation
The Winder Building is home for the Office of the United States Trade Representative. Completed in 1848, it is the oldest Federal office building in Washington, DC.
The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) received funds through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) for the Winder Building. These funds were first used to complete a building energy consumption survey. As a result of the survey, a project is in the design phase to implement high-performance, green building measures that will substantially increase energy conservation in Winder.
The major part of the project, a complete renovation of its inefficient heating, ventilation and air condition system, is targeted to begin this calendar year.
