March 22, 2011

Wiley|Wilson is pleased to announce that the Warfare Support Center at Quantico Marine Corps Base has been awarded LEED® Silver.

“Wiley|Wilson takes great pride in consciously maintaining and implementing sustainable design principles and strategies in all projects for material conservation, environmental quality, long-term durability, and energy efficiency,” said Eric James, P.E., LEED AP, Mechanical Engineer and LEED Coordinator at Wiley|Wilson. “Our project methodology focused on the whole building design which utilized an integrated design approach in design of the project. This resulted in a collaborative and holistic design solution that not only achieved LEED but acknowledged and addressed additional criteria in the complex design of a high performance building.”

LEED certification of the Warfare Support Center was based on a number of green design and construction features that positively impact the project itself and the broader community. The features of the 8,400 SF Warfare Support Center include an improved envelope construction, reduced lighting power, a higher-efficiency HVAC system and water-saving plumbing fixtures. By using less energy and water, this LEED certified building saves money; reduce greenhouse gas emissions; and contribute to a healthier environment for residents, workers and the larger community.
