Abstract: The planned U.S. Army Environmental Center (AEC) administrative and command functions facility at Aberdeen Proving Ground, MD has been designated an "Army Showcase Project," which must incorporate the principles of sustainable design and development (SDD), and be worthy of the Sustainable Project Rating Tool (SPiRiT) "platinum" level rating, and the U.S. Green Building Counsel 's (USGBC) rating of "platinum" for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED™). The U.S. Army Engineer Research Development Center, Construction Engineering Research Laboratory (ERDC/CERL) was tasked with performing an independent review of the preliminary DD Form 1391 to: (1) determine if the proposed design will rate "platinum" in SPiRiT and LEED™, and ifnot, how to improve the design to ensure the "platinum" rating; (2) determine the proposed energy savings from the base case model to the proposed design, and (3) review the SPiRiT and LEED™ credits claimed by the A/E, and determine if any new credits will be associated with CERL-recommended design features. This study concluded that, with appropriate funding and review, this project has the potential to earn the "platinum" rating on both LEED™ and SPiRiT criteria, and to achieve improvements in energy savings over the baseline case.
