The Challenge: The U.S. Forestry White Mountain National Forest Admin. Complex was looking to obtain Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Certifications for the new construction of its admin. and warehouse facilities.

The Solution: This was a design-build biomass installation project. It was done in two phases. Phase 1 was the boiler building and back-up propane heating system, while Phase 2 was the installation of the biomass heating system.

The Results: This system deemed the U.S. Forestry facility LEED certified, in addition to substantially reducing the cost of operation by utilizing pellet fuel as their primary source of energy.
