ASHRAE Moves to Net-Zero Energy Global Headquarters


ASHRAE has announced that the organization has moved its headquarters to a newly renovated net-zero energy location in metro Atlanta, 10 miles north of its previous headquarters building.

The new building incorporates digitally connected solutions like remote monitoring and analysis of building performance, a digital twin and Building Information Model (BIM), and innovative mechanical systems visible through an open ceiling around radiant panel clouds. The building was originally built in 1978; renovations began in January 2020.

“ASHRAE’s new global headquarters is a prime example of how we are helping to pioneer a movement that many expect will ultimately make net-zero energy the ‘new norm’ in sustainable design and construction,” said ASHRAE Building Ad Hoc committee chair Ginger Scoggins. “Although new construction of net-zero energy buildings make a lot of headlines, reuse of existing structures is a basic tenet of sustainability – the energy performance of existing buildings must be addressed to substantially impact the 40% of primary energy consumed by buildings.”
