ESPC Project using GSA Schedule 84

GSA took a traditional roof system demolition and replacement in Chicago, IL and opted for a Green alternative.
  • Schedule 56 allowed GSA to install a vegetated room system on approximately 18,000 square feet and a price competitive with traditional methods.
  • The Vegetated Roof is Energy Star rated and approved as Cool Roof technology.
  • The Vegetated Roof has leak detection technology built in, provides significant decrease in storm water run-off and is aesthetically pleasing for the building inhabitants and neighbors.
In order to comply with EO 13423, the VA identified the Loma Linda, CA facility as a candidate for a Photovoltaic (PV) renewable energy system which converts solar energy to electricity.
  • Schedule 56 provided a solution to install one of the most highly efficient PV systems currently available at the Loma Linda facility.
  • The installed system will save the VA facility approximately $60,000 per year in electricity costs and is considered a model for other VA facilities.
