Century Engineering, Inc. has announced its latest LEED Gold Certified project: The Gettysburg National Military Park Museum and Visitor Center. This certification marks the first museum in Pennsylvania and only fourth in the nation to achieve LEED Gold Certification. The $95-million Museum & Visitor’s Center accommodates approximately two million visitors a year.
Century provided mechanical engineering services including the design of heating, cooling, and ventilation systems for the nearly 250,000 square feet of visitor galleries, exhibit space, food service areas, and theaters in the new museum, including ground source heat exchange technologies (geothermal heating and cooling system). This latter system is one of the largest on the East Coast and will help to reduce the annual energy costs of the museum by nearly 50 percent.
