FEA Awarded Austin LEED-EB Contract
January 26, 2010

Austin Convention Center, Austin, TX

Facility Engineering Associates (FEA) was recently awarded a contract to provide consulting on the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) for Existing Buildings (EB) process to the City of Austin, Texas. FEA’s work will include guiding the City of Austin through the LEED-EB certification process and performing retro-commissioning for the Austin Convention Center. The Austin Convention Center began working toward energy efficiency and LEED certification in 2007, and FEA is committed to helping them achieve their goal of LEED Gold certification.

FEA’s team includes several Austin-based firms including:

  • Winterowd Associates, Inc.
  • Baer Engineering and Environmental Consulting, Inc.
  • MWM Design Group, Inc.
  • Encotech Engineering Consulting, Inc.

As cited by the United States Green Building Council (USGBC), “The LEED for Existing Buildings Rating System helps building owners and operators measure operations, improvements and maintenance on a consistent scale, with the goal of maximizing operational efficiency while minimizing environmental impacts. LEED for Existing Buildings addresses whole-building cleaning and maintenance issues (including chemical use), recycling programs, exterior maintenance programs, and systems upgrades.”
