Second Lab of the Year Recognition for NREL

In 2008, NREL was recognized by R&D Magazine with a special award for the Science & Technology Facility. The 71,000-square-foot laboratory was the first federal building to achieve the highest Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building rating from the U.S. Green Buildings Council and marked the beginning of a series of LEED Platinum high-performance buildings at NREL.

Constructed by the design-build team of SmithGroupJJR and JE Dunn, ESIF became the fifth facility at NREL to earn a LEED platinum designation. Home to 200 scientists and engineers, the multi-story building fits into the sloping side of a mesa and is bounded by an arroyo on one side. Care was taken to minimize disturbing the natural terrain during construction.

ESIF achieved all 56 LEED points applied for, and the facility is 40% more energy efficient than the baseline building built according to ASHRAE/IESNA Standard 90.1-2004. This is an exceptional achievement when considering that the ESIF has a 1 megawatt (MW) AC electric grid simulator, a 1 MW photovoltaic simulator, and a 1 MW load bank connected through the REDB, along with a variety of high and medium voltage outdoor testing areas.

The total cost to build and equip ESIF was $135 million.

"To have the ESIF facility, which advances research capabilities that don't exist anywhere else in the world, recognized for such a prestigious award only proves the hard work and dedication of the project team," states Brad Woodman, AIA, LEED AP BD+C, vice president and director of SmithGroupJJR's Phoenix office. "Congratulations to the entire ESIF team for a job well done on a project that will change the future of energy thought and use worldwide."
