Princeton University ORFE Building

This new academic building houses computer-intensive spaces as well as a lecture hall, classrooms, and offices. Sustainable design techniques were investigated and implemented in accordance with Princeton Universitys Sustainable Design Standard & USGBCs LEED Green Building Standards. The use of a high-performance building envelope, daylight harvesting systems, highly efficient equipment, and demand control ventilation resulted in a building that uses 33% less energy on a cost basis when compared to American Society of Heating Refrigeration (ASHRAE) Standard 90.1-2004 Baseline Model Building.
