Jordan & Skala Engineers is honored to have been featured in US Builders Review publication for its sustainable engineering design and LEED consulting services for the LEED EBOM certification of the Dallas Museum of Art.
The article discusses the tremendous growth Jordan & Skala’s Energy Services department has experienced since its establishment in 2002. “What started mainly with LEED guidelines, evolved over the last decade into a plethora of specialized certifications and understanding among Jordan & Skala’s leading team,” states US Builders Review.
The publication acknowledges the Dallas Museum of Art’s (DMA) recent LEED Silver certification for Existing Buildings as one of Jordan & Skala’s “most significant undertakings to date.” The article states, “As the prime LEED EBOM director for the Silver certification process, Jordan & Skala was a driving factor in sustainability consulting, management, and coordination between the facility manager and owner.”
The Dallas Museum of Art achieved LEED Silver certification for energy use, lighting, water, material use, among other categories. The facility reduced the introduction of mercury-containing lights through sustainable purchasing and potable consumption with low-flow plumbing fixtures. High-performance green cleaning standards were implemented in order to reduce visitors’ and staff’s exposure to hazardous contaminants. The museum optimized energy performance, hitting the 24th percentile. This ranking is above the national median, according to the Environmental Protection Agency’s Energy Star portfolio manager.
