Calais LPOE, Commissioning and LEED Consulting Case Study
Acting as the General Services Administration’s representative, SMRT commissioned the Calais Land Port of Entry—one of several SMRT projects supporting the GSA. The complex, designed by Robert Siegel Architects, consists of facilities for commercial and non-commercial inspections with supporting staff areas including a firearms range, USDA/FDA laboratories and UV disinfection equipment. Beyond providing peer review for engineering and LEED architectural requirements, SMRT commissioned the HVAC system, lighting controls, domestic hot water as well as emergency power, fire suppression and fire alarm systems. The commissioning process included a complete measurement and verification plan and subsequent detailed review of the projects energy performance. The project achieved LEED Gold certification.
