Energy Efficient Buildings Hub Breaks Ground

Atelier Ten teamed up with architectural firm KieranTimberlake to develop the sustainable framework for the new headquarters of the Energy Efficient Buildings Hub (EEB Hub), located at the Philadelphia Navy Yard. The EEB Hub performs research to develop and integrate materials, technologies, models, and tools to optimize whole building energy performance.

April 24th marked the anticipated groundbreaking after the building being vacant for nearly two decades.  The project will entail the retrofit of Building 661, known as the Center for Building Energy Science, and the new construction of an adjacent building. Together the two buildings will house the new headquarters and will incorporate collaborative work areas, meeting and conference space, classrooms, and laboratory spaces to promote the research, development and demonstration of current and emerging energy efficient systems and technologies.

Atelier Ten provided Environmental Design, Energy Modeling, LEED Program Administration and Lighting Design to improve energy efficiency and operability, and reduce carbon emissions for the new and existing building. Atelier Ten’s team for this project included Director Paul Stoller, Associate Wendy Meguro, Environmental Designer Jagan Pillai and Senior Environmental Designer Shruti Kasarekar.
