EMERGENCY RESPONSE BUILDING #254 Sustainable transformation

This project is part of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey’s commitment to Sustainability.  The building will be transformed from an energy wasteful “temporary” structure into an example of the PA’s commitment to increasing the sustainability of its building inventory.

The building’s HVAC system will be converted to a ground loop geothermal system.  Energy recovery ventilation will be utilized to reduce the impact of the buildings        considerable fresh air requirement.  Enhanced control of individual spaces will reduce energy usage and increase occupant comfort.

Added skylights along with high efficiency lighting with automatic controls will       transform the interior into a welcoming low impact work and training space for a critical group of public service men and women.  The project also includes roof, wall and window upgrades to increase thermal performance.
