About ASHRAE Headquarters – The Living Lab

The newly renovated ASHRAE Headquarters building has been awarded a LEED Platinum Certification in the New Construction 2.2 rating system and ENERGY STAR® from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The building has sensing and monitoring capabilities at a level that is unprecedented in current commercial buildings. The building systems technologies include Dedicated Outdoor Air Supply (DOAS), Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF), and Ground Source Heat Pump (GSHP) systems. Together, these systems create a living laboratory, providing ongoing value and serving to extend knowledge and information worldwide.

ASHRAE’s goal in renovating its headquarters building was to showcase ASHRAE technology and to demonstrate the Society’s commitment to sustainability.


Technical Tour of ASHRAE Headquarters (Atlanta training sessions only)

Training participants will see the many sustainable design measures that ASHRAE included in the building renovation.

  • Enhancements to the building envelope that have resulted in reduction of estimated annual energy usage by more than 32.5%
  • Utilization of an extensive permanent air quality monitoring system to help sustain occupant comfort and well-being in the renovated building
  • Utilization of a 6,000 CFM dedicated outside air system that can provide ventilation rates to each space that are 30% higher than Standard 62.1-2004
  • A comfortable thermal environment that supports the productivity and wellbeing of all building occupants by adhering to the requirements of ASHRAE Standard 55
  • Demonstration of how PV arrays can be utilized to generate clean power by taking advantage of under-utilized space on building roof
  • Use of the facility as “living lab,” which is monitored and metered to capture building performance data

The building received an A- rating as designed in ASHRAE's new Building Energy Quotient™ program; LEED™ Platinum Certification in the New Construction 2.2 rating system from the U.S. Green Building Council; and ENERGY STAR® from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
