Constructed in 1914, the Oregon Supreme Court is the oldest and most treasured building on the Capitol Mall. Its library is home to historic documents that date back to the 15th century. Building system upgrades to increase energy efficiency along with seismic resilience were necessary to preserve this Oregon treasure. The project included a cost effectiveness analysis of the existing court building to reach specific energy conservation goals compared to baseline energy use. Recommended strategies were implemented into the construction process. The building energy efficiency system upgrade measures will reduce heating and cooling loads by over 20%.
