Association of Energy Engineers
National Capital Chapter
We are very pleased to inform you that our August event has been approved by the Architect of the Capitol, an Officer of Congress. Without his approval, this event would not have been possible. There will be three parts to the event.
10:30AM - 2:00 PM
Part One: The event will begin with a presentation from Douglas Helmann from the office of the Architect of the Capitol which will be made in the United States Capitol Visitor Center Congressional Meeting Room North. The room can hold 80, so we need to cap the size at 80 participants.
Part Two: There will be a catered lunch.
Part Three: There will be a tour of our energy renovation project in the House Office Buildings. The Architect of the Capitol recently saw the completion of the House Office Building’s energy savings performance contract, a 30-month construction project that included approximately $34 million in facility infrastructure upgrades in the Rayburn, Longworth, Cannon and Ford House Office Buildings. Through this effort, the total energy consumption of the House Office Buildings was reduced 23 percent, savings equivalent to removing approximately 1,700 cars from the road or planting more than 2,600 acres of trees. We can expect to see a variety of Energy Conservation Measures applied to some of the most historically significant buildings on the planet as well as some of the grandest spaces in this country. There are several special considerations for this event due to the nature of the location.
1. It is essential that all participants visit the US Capitol’s website for information regarding coming to the U.S. Capitol, including a list of prohibited items: www.visitthecapitol.gov
2. Security: People must enter the Capitol Visitor’s Center through the main visitor entrance off 1st Street.
3. Capitol Visitor Center staff will provide signage to get us to the meeting room.
4. There shall be no display of logos, promotional, or commercial items.
5. Podium signs are not allowed.
6. No materials are to be affixed to the walls, statues or any structures in the Capitol Visitor Center.
7. Video-recording may be used for internal or archival purposes only – requests to video-record must be submitted to the Visitor Center Special Events Office in advance.
8. Photography is permitted.
