Big-D Construction Given Department of Energy Award

Press Release

January 24, 2014

Salt Lake City – Big-D Construction was recently awarded the 2013 Federal Energy and Water Management Award by the United States Department of Energy for the company’s work on the National Park Service Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area in Calabasas, Calif.

Each year, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), in conjunction with the Federal Interagency Energy Policy Committee, sponsors these awards, which honor individuals and organizations making significant contributions to energy and water efficiency within the federal government.

The awards recognize outstanding achievements in:

  • Energy and water efficiency and conservation

  • Renewable energy implementation

  • Sustainable practices for high-performance buildings

  • Fleet and transportation management

Big-D and ajc architects worked with the National Park Service (NPS) to design-build a LEED Platinum interpretive learning center for the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area (NRA). The new facility is the first grid-tied, net-zero visitor center completed in the national park system. It is also the first facility in the system designed with light emitting diode (LED) electronics for all exterior and interior lighting fixtures.

The 7,000-square-foot building is heated and cooled by a highly efficient water source heat pump system using an existing manmade pond as the primary heating and cooling source.
