Map It!


In 1997, the International Finance Corporation (IFC), the private sector investment arm of the World Bank Group, opened its new headquarters at 2121 Pennsylvania Ave. N.W. in Washington, D.C.  The decision to operate the facility according to the highest commercial standards led to the selection of Prentiss Properties, a national Real Estate Trust (REIT)
based in Dallas, Texas to provide facility management.

The building's state of the art mechanical and energy management systems demonstrate that selective allocation of capital by the IFC in the design and construction phase will continue to provide operating economies throughout the life of the building. High efficiency mechanical systems are coupled with variable frequency motor drives and efficient use of task lighting, compliment the open floor plans that distribute sunlight throughout the spaces.

Prentiss operating engineers recognize the financial impact of electrical demand charges, and as such, target their operation towards peak demand reduction.  By monitoring electrical demand levels and establishing a peak target, the energy management system is programmed
to selectively reset equipment to keep the demand within defined limits, while never compromising occupant comfort.

The IFC and Prentiss Properties are proud to have been awarded the
ENERGY STAR label and attribute this success to the extraordinary partnership of sound design and enlightened operational strategy.
