Battle of the Buildings

The Michigan Battle of the Buildings is an awards program held by the U.S. Green Building Council for energy use reduction open to all commercial, industrial, and multi-family buildings. DTMB won awards for the following:

  • South Grand Office Building – Second place in the Biggest Loser in the Office Category in 2017 & 2018. Projects contributing to the energy savings include LED lighting upgrades, adjustment of control loops, reset schedules to maintain HVAC systems, installation of occupancy sensors, and confining services to normal business hours instead of 24-hours.

  • Escanaba State Office Building – First place in the Biggest Loser in the Water Category in 2017. The improved performance and efficient water volume was accomplished by upgrading facility restrooms and installing automatic low-flush valves.
