GSA seeks new sustainable building technologies, practices to test in its buildings
The U.S. General Services Administration wants to hear from you about new sustainable technologies and practices. It recently issued a Request for Information  (RFI) to learn about the latest in green building in support of its Green Proving Ground program. The program uses GSA’s own real estate portfolio as a test bed to evaluate the viability of emerging building technologies and practices to save energy, water, and reduce operational costs.
The program is seeking information from industry, commercial organizations, educational institutions, and non-profit organizations on technologies that have the potential to improve economic and environmental performance in federal buildings. The RFI invites industry and stakeholders to submit information to the program, which will be used in the selection process for technologies to test as part of the GPG’s 2013 program. Results from these evaluations will assist GSA in finding ways to make buildings more efficient and help guide the building industry in deploying new technologies and practices.
GSA owns and leases 9,600 buildings across the country. The agency is asking for innovative building technologies and practices to be donated or provided via testing agreements at no cost. The RFI will remain open until Friday, November 23 at 5:00 pm ET.
