Fluid Handling and Fluid Power


The US Army Corps of Engineers is going for an environmentally friendly distinction in a major building project in Virginia. The Corps is overseeing construction of the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency's New Campus East, which will include an eight-story main building of 2.1 million square feet, a technology center, central utility plant, visitor center, and other structures. The Corps has set the goal of certifying the main building for a silver rating under the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design program of the US Green Building Council. Vivek Gowda, a consultant to the Army Corps of Engineers, is the project engineer for the main office building envelope, and Rob Purvis of the construction management consulting firm McDonough Bolyard Peck is the project engineer coordinating mechanical aspects of the main office building construction. According to Gowda, the roof will allow natural light to pass through, but it is configured to inhibit excessive radiant heat gain.
