The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) has earned its fifth ENERGY STAR designation for the National Housing Center, the downtown Washington, D.C. office building that serves as the association’s headquarters.

The designation recognizes buildings that conserve natural resources while providing a comfortable and healthy environment for employees and visitors.

Since the building was significantly expanded and renovated in 2001, the Housing Center’s property manager, Transwestern, has continued to fine-tune the details of the original project.

To earn its fifth designation, Transwestern engineers continued to install occupancy sensors in common areas so the lights turn on only when the room is in use. Low-flow aerators were installed in all restroom sinks as well as additional insulation around the perimeter of the building.

Transwestern staff also regularly inspects and maintains the heating and air-conditioning equipment used in the building to optimize its performance and prolong its life.
