Johnson Controls‘ (NYSE: JCI) federal business will help the General Services Administration implement energy efficiency systems and conservation measures at national landmark buildings as part of a three-year, $91 million government project.
Johnson Controls Federal Systems is scheduled to commence work on May 1 to modernize historic building systems using digital and connected technology platforms to support the GSA’s National Deep Energy Retrofit initiative, the company said Tuesday.
The team will update lighting, energy, water and heating, ventilation and air conditioning equipment in Washington, D.C., government facilities such as the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center, the Jackson Place Complex and the Eisenhower Executive Office Building,
George Oliver, chairman and CEO of Johnson Controls, said the company aims to help GSA address environmental and energy management goals for historic facilities as the federal government works toward achieving “net zero” emissions.
GSA incorporated an energy savings performance contracting approach into the NDER program in order to simplify agreement finalization and issuance processes, Johnson Controls noted.
The agency aims to cut building energy costs by more than 34 percent through the project.
