Greening of the City-County Building

The Indianapolis City-County Building is a 50-year old downtown landmark constructed at a time when energy efficiency and green technology wasn't a top priority. Given the cost of maintaining the building, the Mayor of Indianapolis, Office of Sustainability, and the Indianapolis Marion County Building Authority worked with the Rocky Mountain Institute to lead a design charette with local energy engineers and business leaders. As a result, the City developed a request for energy proposal. Performance Services was selected to complete an energy audit and as a result was authorized to design and implement a "deep energy retrofit" guaranteed energy savings project at no cost to taxpayers.

Under the direction of Ron Reinking, the Building Authority has overseen a number of energy related improvements over the years, but nothing as comprehensive as this project which utilizes a holistic approach and includes measurable results. The "Greening of the City-County Building initiative serves to demonstrate leadership in sustainable practices. The building achieved the ENERGY STAR label in October 2012 and is one of the most energy efficient public buildings in the nation.
