Project Description

Washington, D.C.
LEED NC v2.2 Platinum
Size: 300,000 SF

WorkingBuildings provided commissioning services for this multi-story facility that features a BSL-3 laboratory, high-containment autopsy, and a forensic biology (DNA analysis) laboratory. The Consolidated Forensic Laboratory is a cutting-edge, award-winning science facility designed to provide the District of Columbia with critical public safety and health science infrastructure. In addition, the facility is home to the Department of Forensic Sciences and the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner.

The building is certified LEED Platinum. Efficiency-minded features include:

  • 30,000-square-foot green roof with vegetation and a hard runoff reclamation cistern that can reclaim two million gallons of rainwater per year
  • An energy-efficient building “skin” that uses coated glass to reduce heat load on the building
  • Chilled beam and heat recovery methods (enthalphy wheels) to maintain temperatures.
