Francis A. Gregory Neighborhood Library achieves LEED Gold certification

The energy efficient District of Columbia Public Library receives LEED Gold Certification from U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) for its sustainable design.

Setty in collaboration with Adjaye Associates and Wiencek + Associates has succeeded in earning environmental praise by turning DCPL’s Francis A. Gregory Neighborhood Library facility into an energy efficient building.    
The new Francis A. Gregory Neighborhood Library encircling an area of 26,372 SF has become an eminent example for showcasing efficiency in preserving state-of-the-art and intriguing design without down grading the high-performance features of the building. Design could achieve 23.25% on energy savings and 18.34% on cost savings highlighting Setty’s contribution.

The DCPL’s program to dedicate architecturally distinctive structure in Washington neighborhood by seeking to transform the small civic building from just repositories of books into incubators for learning as well as community interaction was achieved by the collaboration of MEP expert Setty with architectural big guns such as Adjaye Associates and Wiencek + Associates.
