This project provides for the procurement and partial compensation of an Energy Service Company (ESCO) to replace the outdated and energy-inefficient HVAC systems in the Executive Office Building (EOB) located at 101 Monroe Street, Rockville, Maryland. The ESCO analyzes, designs, and constructs the energy-efficient Heating Ventiliation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) replacement systems. In return, the ESCO receives a portion of the saved energy costs in addition to direct compensation.


101 Monroe Street, Rockville MD 20850

Estimated Schedule

The ESCO analysis and design is scheduled to occur in FY15 with an agreement with the ESCO and construction occurring in late FY15 and FY16.


The EOB was built in 1979, and its HVAC system is over 30 years old. In 2006, the Department of General Services hired a consultant (URS Inc.) to conduct a condition assessment study to identify the condition of the HVAC system. The outcome of this study indicated that all equipment and components have reached the end of their economic life expectancy. Moreover, the existing all electric heating system is highly inefficient and is costly to operate. The consultant study recommended that the entire HVAC system be redesigned with state-of-theart-technology, highly efficient equipment, and be replaced in its entirety. The ESCO approach to this project saves the County considerable upfront costs.

Fiscal Note

Project completion has slipped from FY15 to FY16 due to contract award delays.
