CLIENT: Dovetail Construction Company

Dovetail Construction Inc. renovated a former electric railway car barn for their new office and warehouse space. The Historic renovation achieved LEED Platinum level certification, and is on track to achieve Net Zero energy use.

This project was built as a “building within a building”. The interior office building has a high efficiency building envelope, with walls from R25-R40, and R40-R50 ceilings. A high efficiency LED lights system was installed in the office and warehouse spaces. Heating and cooling is provided by a high efficiency ground source heat pumps system, which variable speed loop water pumping. A dedicated ventilation air system allows further efficiency and energy recovery, while providing excellent indoor air quality.

“Staengl Engineering was instrumental in getting our LEED project up and running. The firm provided great input and direction so we could make real progress. They are responsive, conscientious, thorough- consummate professionals. We would enthusiastically welcome the opportunity to work with them again.”
