The Armed Forces Readiness Center in Montgomery, Alabama, is a 144,000 square foot office and administrative complex for the Alabama Army National Guard. The building was designed to reduce energy use relative to the ASHRAE Standard 90.1 Appendix G baseline by over 40%, and the $40 million dollar project also included installation of a 363.3 kW photovoltaic array to help the installation meet the EPAct 2005 requirements for energy production from renewable sources. Epsten Group assisted the project team by providing LEED Consulting and Systems Commissioning services for the project, helping it to achieve LEED-NC v2.2 Gold certification in 2012.
