Originally built in 1910, Montalto was specially designed for James Addison Patterson and referred to as “Repose”. In an effort to preserve Montalto’s historic and natural viewshed from development, the Thomas Jefferson Foundation completed acquisition of the property in 2004. The restoration and renovation of Repose accommodates a range of programs and events, including a meeting space for the Foundation’s Board of Directors and other non-profits, lectures, seminars, conferences, educational retreats, dinners, and events for visiting scholars.
2RW was brought on by Glave and Holmes to provide engineering design and LEED energy modeling services and was able to incorporate a number of sustainable aspects while not affecting the historic nature of the property.
As the commissioning authority on the project, 2RW oversaw all the tasks associated with the LEED Fundamental Commissioning process including:
After the functional performance testing period, 2RW collected and analyzed high-frequency interval data from the building automation system to assess the operation of equipment over time. Data was collected and stored in 2RW’s proprietary Measurement and Verification software, MVpro, which allowed 2RW engineers to quickly identify system inefficiencies and malfunctions.
