COLUMBUS, Ohio - WD Partners has signed a multi-year contract with Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) to develop a high-performance Home Depot store in California through the Department of Energy’s Commercial Building Partnership (CBP). CBP projects put cutting-edge building techniques and technologies on the fast-track to wide-spread commercial use.
The team will design and construct an energy-efficient Home Depot prototype store that will require up to 50% less energy than American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers Illuminating Engineering Society of North America Standard 90.1-2007 compliant buildings.
