Constitution Center in Washington, D.C. represents the largest chilled beam installation in the United States, with more than 7,000 active chilled beams. The $260 million, 1.4 millon square foot project was designed by SmithGroup and was the largest privately owned building rennovation in the city’s history. The firm’s architects and engineers aimed to minimize energy consumption, produce impressive cost savings for the owner and reduce the building’s carbon footprint while providing an exceptional work environment. The building’s sustainable design was designed to meet the LEED® Gold rating.
In this project, TROX USA provided active chilled beams type DID602 as the primary terminal device in the HVAC system. The chilled beams were a key component to achieving both improved energy-efficiency and improved air quality in the building.
The installation of TROX active chilled beams in Constitution Center resulted in a 22% energy cost savings. According to SmithGroup, the building’s design firm, TROX’s chilled beams are the main component responsible for the reduced costs, as a “result of the ability to provide required cooling capacity without running the 4,800 ton chiller plant most of the year.” The building’s sustainable design is expected to acheive a LEED® Gold rating.
