Owner: Georgetown University
Location: Washington DC
MEP Engineer: JVP ENGINEERS
Heffron project manger: Brian Foster
Completion Date: August 2012

Heffron helped build the newest LEED® Gold Certified building for Georgetown University as established by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). Regents Hall science building comprises 154,000 square feet of space including 12 teaching labs, three dedicated floors for laboratory testing, and various student lounges.

Heffron and the engineering team helped reduce the use of potable water as the site and building uses a rain water reclamation system both for irrigation and for low-flow bathroom fixtures. An enthalpy wheel total energy recovery system and a hydronic system with chilled beams provide comfort cooling for this building.
