By November 12, 2018 No Comments

In this case study, explore the design and sustainability strategies of the newly renovated AGU headquarters in Washington, D.C.

AGU’s headquarters project is transforming what might be a typical renovation into an opportunity to communicate the organization’s mission through the built environment by incorporating data-driven, scientific principles and remaining transparent throughout the entire process. AGU’s renovation project is on target to earn LEED Platinum certification. However, AGU’s renovation is going above and beyond LEED v2009 credits by incorporating LEED v4 strategies into the project design in order to achieve their goal of net zero energy.
