HARC’s LEED Platinum headquarters was recently featured in Modern Steel Construction, the official publication of the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC). The article highlighted the Whole Building Life Cycle Assessment (WBLCA) undertaken by the project’s civil engineering partner, Walter P Moore, and the resulting utilization of a steel-framed structure, one that led to a 20% reduction in embodied CO2 associated with the building’s structural and enclosure systems.
HARC’s research is conducted by a team of dedicated research professionals with diverse backgrounds in energy, air and water disciplines. HARC researchers have broad experience in basic and applied science, technology development and adoption, policy analysis, stakeholder communication, geospatial technologies, and public outreach. This diversity allows the organization to respond to the needs of varied sponsors, stakeholders and organizations.
