Lovejoy Building Case Study

Case Study / April 27, 2012 / Deep Energy Retrofits

In Portland, OR a retrofit of the existing load-bearing brick structure required a major seismic upgrade in this building. The architects used this as an opportunity for an integrated response to advanced structural upgrades, enhanced user thermal comfort and improved energy savings. The building’s actual energy use is 40 kBtu/sf/yr, 57% better than the average for office buildings in the U.S.
