The Pinnacle System was chosen as it provides a balanced light spectrum to maintain the health of the "Peace Tree", it has a thermally enhanced construction, and fast on-site assembly and installation

Challenge

The building is on the National Mall in direct line of sight to the White House. It was necessary to plan a work schedule to accommodate the steady flow of ambassadors and diplomats.

Balancing the delicate light spectrum requirements of the ‘Peace Tree’ with the visible light transmittance and energy efficiency needs of the owner was a critical challenge and important compromise.

Solution

VELUX Pinnacle Skylight System was chosen because of its thermally enhanced construction, standardized engineering, and fast on-site assembly and installation.

An energy modeling analysis was conducted to help choose the appropriate glazing that balanced the light spectrum needs of the tree but still provided the owners a payback model with thousands of dollars in energy savings per year.
