The University of Washington Husky Stadium Renovation and Team Facilities restores iconic Husky Stadium to one the finest college football venues in the country. In addition to new seating, suites, and other spectator amenities, state-of-the-art team operations and sports medicine facilities have been efficiently integrated into the renovation of the program.

Energy modeling was initially employed to evaluate compliance with the 2009 Seattle Energy Code via the Systems Analysis (RS-29) approach. This required close coordination with the design team, as well as pro-active communication with code reviewers throughout the permiting process. The same detailed models were used to evaluate impacts of various envelope revisions, and on-going work includes preparing ASHRAE 90.1-2007 Appendix G energy models to determine LEED-NC 2009 Energy and Atmosphere (EAc1) performance rating.
