This document describes the preliminary results of a study to recommend changes to the construction phase of the Military Construction, Army MCA process. Implementation of these changes would ensure that facility contract documents, the facility construction process, and the resulting facility embody the facility designs energy conservation objectives. The research identified problems with producing energy-efficient facilities within the Corps current construction process. The operation of the Corps Quality ControlQuality Assurance program was evaluated and improvements suggested. Problems with the energy-effectiveness of Corps of Engineers Guide Specifications CEGS were also identified, with improvements suggested for the Air Supply and Distribution Guide Specification CEGS-15805. Suggested revisions to Section 19, Testing, Adjusting, and Balancing, of CEGS-15805 were also compiled. Author
