Project Services

Steven Winter Associates, Inc. (SWA) was recruited by Miner Feinstein Architects LLC and Fort Stevens Place LLC to provide high-performance building consulting and third-party testing for the project. From design to final construction, SWA’s scope included monitoring water efficiency, energy efficiency, and approval of green products – from paints to flooring and more- to promote indoor environmental quality. SWA also provided third party testing to ensure that there is minimal air leakage and quality fresh air in every unit to optimize the comfort and health of its occupants.
