The Carnegie Endowment for International Peace (CEIP) building is located at 1779 Massachusetts Ave NW, one block west of DuPont Circle in Washington DC. The CEIP building is an 8-story, 80,000 square foot office building built in 1996. Two custom penthouse rooftop units provide ventilation air to multiple fan powered VAV boxes located throughout the building.
SBP provided comprehensive retro-commissioning services for the project. SBP also completed an ASHRAE Level I building performance assessment identifying several immediate low/no-cost measures that the CEIP could implement. In addition to the retro-Cx and ASHRAE Level I analysis, SBP worked with property management to document the building operations plan, preventative maintenance plan and facilities systems narrative. Within one year of completion of the retro-commissioning effort and CEIP implementation of measures, fixes and adjustments identified the CEIP is realizing improved building performance.
