Project Highlights

GSA Region 8, Guiding Principles and LEED Existing Building Services

The General Services Administration (GSA) supports the basic functioning of the federal government, including managing government-owned and leased facilities. For design, construction, and management of sustainable buildings, GSA follows the Leadership in Energy and Design (LEED) rating system, requiring Federal new-construction and substantial-renovation projects to meet LEED Gold requirements for environmental friendliness and sustainability—producing less waste and consuming less energy.

Redhorse provided a full range of sustainability, energy, and engineering services to support GSA Region 8, the Rocky Mountain Region, in meeting its Guiding Principles and LEED-Existing Building requirements and goals. This included building investigations and gap analysis, Guiding Principles and LEED Existing Building documentation, technical consulting, and regulatory guidance.

Redhorse was responsible for certification and re-certification of Guiding Principle buildings and developing a portfolio approach to achieving environmental and sustainability initiatives throughout the six state Region. Redhorse also provided specialized engineering services, including conducting ASHRAE 62.1 testing and calculations, ASHRAE Level II audits, and water conservation assessments.
