The Energy Efficient Hub (EEB Hub) Project at the Navy Yard, PSU Project number 03-03808.01, DGS#800-295, includes two buildings:
As a former gymnasium built in 1942 and unused since the Navy Yard closure in 1996, Building 661 will be renovated to serve as the new 32,000-square-foot headquarters for the EEB Hub and the primary location for research, demonstration, and educational activities of the EEB Hub researchers and administrators. The EEB Hub will include research and monitoring labs, a demonstration program, meeting spaces, and offices and is intended to serve as both a living laboratory and a demonstration of techniques and strategies for the implementation of deep retrofits to effect significant improvements in energy performance.
Serving as the primary presence of Penn State University in Philadelphia, Building 7R will house Architectural Engineering programs focused on furthering the understanding and adoption of energy efficient systems and technologies available to commercial buildings. Building 7R includes general purpose classrooms, distance learning enabled technology rooms, and hands-on training areas where students and professionals interact with real components and controls. Complementary to the functions of several spaces in Building 661, 7R provides a tiered lecture hall with seats for 175 people and a linear gallery space for display of new and emerging building technologies.
The construction work will be bid in two stages. The first stage will be the asbestos abatement and demolition (structural only) packages only. The second stage will include all other work including: general trades, mechanical, electrical and plumbing packages.
