Project Details:

The US Fish and Wildlife center in Laurel, Maryland is part of the Patuxent Research Refuge, which was established in 1936 by President Franklin D. Roosevelt.  The refuge now covers 12,841 acres between Washington, DC and Baltimore, MD.  Much of the refuge is open to the public to explore and learn about local flora and fauna.  In addition, there are research facilities for US Fish and Wildlife and the US Geological Survey; this project covered the labs and storage buildings for the former.

 

US-Fish-&-Wildlife-ServicesThe US Fish and Wildlife Service, as a federal entity, is required to meet strict guidelines for the equipment used in their facilities.  US Fish and Wildlife selected the Cenergetix / LED Living Technology retrofit solution due to its ease of use, flexibility of installation, efficiency, and the industry leading 10-year warranty.
