Updated federal office building in Pittsburgh saves 28% on energy
The modernized, 768,027-gsf William S. Moorhead Federal Office Building in Pittsburgh now saves more than 28% of energy compared to its pre-renovation consumption. EYP Architecture & Engineering designed and engineered the project, with its 22 floors of office space, cafeteria, two basements, and two penthouse levels. More than 40 government agencies occupy the building, making equipment and system overhauls essential to maintain operations. Originally designed in 1958 by Altenhof & Brown, the skyscraper benefited from numerous upgrades: energy-efficient lighting and sensor controls, low-flow plumbing, up-to-date electrical and fire systems, state-of-the- art building control systems, and a new VAV mechanical system.
