5 Recovery Act -How Projects were Selected Energy Savings PotentialProjects that have been designed or are in design with a focus on creating high performing, energy saving buildings.Speed of DeliveryProjects that can be developed and awarded quickly (projects must be awarded by )Projects that can be completed before 2015Projects were selected based the energy savings potential of the project with a focus on sustainabilityAlso, due to provisions in the Recovery Act bill, GSA picked projects that can be developed and awarded quickly in order to meet our deadline of expending all funds by 2015.
6 What does the Recovery Act mean to GSA? National: $5.55B total funding for Federal Buildings.$1.05B - New construction$750M: Federal Buildings and U.S. Courthouses$300M: Land Ports of Entry$4.5B –Modernization/High-Performance Green Building ProjectsLimited Scope/High-Performance Green Building Projects (Recommissioning, Lighting, Updated Controls, Mechanical Equipment, etc)GSA received 5.5 Billion Dollars of Recovery Act funds nationally for expenditures related to Federal BuildingsOf that, 1.5 Billion is for New Construction & 4.5 Billion is for Modernization/High Performance Green Building Projects
7 What does the Recovery Act mean to Region 8? R8 total Recovery Act funds received: $426,527,0001 new construction project = $79,989 (Billings, MT Courthouse)15 limited scope projects = $70,053,0004 modernization projects = $276,485,000GSA’s Region 8 received $426 Million of Recovery Act FundsOur only new construction project is a new courthouse in Billings, Montana

9 Trends & Strategies During Recovery The federal government has played a highly constructive role in the growth of “green” buildings:GSA requires certification of every newly constructed building in its inventory to LEED standards. GSA also requires LEED certification for private sector buildings constructed through GSA leases.GSA’s strategy during Recovery:By investing in backlog of infrastructure projects we can:Help stimulate jobs in the construction and real estate sectors,Stimulate long-term growth in energy-efficient technologies, alternative energy solutions and green buildingsHow are infrastructure projects stimulating growth in green technologies?
10 Trends & Strategies During Recovery GSA is stimulating growth by requiring adherence to the Minimum-Performance High Performing Green Building criteria:This criteria is incorporated in the initial scoping of all Recovery projects, both existing building and new construction. This criteria includes facets from:Guiding Principles for Sustainable Existing BuildingsCertain provisions of EISA (Energy Independence & Security Act of 2007)Buildings with sufficient total scope to obtain a LEED rating must achieve a LEED Silver certification, at a minimum.MPC Checklist ensures a “green” project
11 Trends & Strategies During Recovery $4.5 B focused on high-performance green building projectsGSA is a proving ground for green technologiesIncludes such improvements as:Renewable energy—photovoltaics and windCool Roofs (R50)WindowsLighting replacementHigh-performance building systems (High Efficiency HVAC Equipment)Advanced metering
12 Denver Federal Center Photovoltaic Project Two Phased Project- Phase One:Phase 1 is a Roof Mounted PV Array located at Buildings 20, 56, 810 on the Federal Center.The PV arrays will cover about 19 acres of roof.Combined capacity of the PV arrays is roughly 3 MegawattsGenerate 4,115,000 kWh per yearSave about $300,000 in electricity cost per year.This phase of the project has been procured as a design/build small business set aside and was awarded December 16th, 2009 to Centerre E Light, A Joint Venture, LLC.
13 Denver Federal Center Photovoltaic Project Two Phased Project- Phase Two:Ground Mounted and Car Port Photovoltaic System has yet to be awardedTwo ground mounted solar PV arrays at two different sitesOne 13 acres site and one 3 acre siteCombined capacity of both ground sites will be approximately 2 megawattsWill produce about 3,565,000 kWh per yearSave about $260,000 in electricity cost per yearPhase 2 of the project is a design/build small business set aside and is scheduled for award in mid-March, 2010.
