McKinley & Associates (McKinley Architecture and Engineering) is being recognized for their commitment to sustainability and energy efficiency in design of office buildings, schools, multi-use facilities, and a wide variety of commercial, industrial, government, and historical structures. A few examples of their work:
- Hilltop Elementary School in Wheeling was the first LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certified school in West Virginia.
- The WV State Office Building in Logan is one of the most energy efficient buildings owned by the State and is in the top five percent of all Energy Star rated buildings in the country.
- The WVU Industrial Assessment Center (IAC) recently developed an energy use report for the historic Fort Henry Club in Wheeling, which had been scheduled for demolition to make way for a parking lot. The IAC report enabled McKinley & Associates to obtain a grant from the USDA REAP (Rural Energy for America Program) to help restore the building. The building was redesigned and converted into new office space incorporating state of the art lighting and HVAC systems, enhancing the historic nature of the building and providing significant energy savings.
- McKinley Architecture and Engineering practices what they preach – all their offices are in revitalized, restored buildings – thus reflecting their commitment to provide sustainable and energy efficient building solutions without sacrificing quality, comfort, and future viability.
