Tower Offices Base Building, 2000 Tower Oaks Blvd
The Tower Companies corporate headquarters is located at 2000 Tower Oaks Boulevard. The Tower Companies is the largest Green Builder in the Nation’s Capitol.
VitaTech was retained by the Tower Companies to perform an EMF Assessment, Simulation & Mitigation Study, in order to predict EMF levels at 2000 Tower Oaks when the building is under electrical load and occupied. VitaTech simulated various electrical power sources to determine EMF emissions and decay rates and defined the areas where elevated electromagnetic interference (EMI) could compromise the 2000 Tower Oaks environment.
VitaTech designed, fabricated, installed and verified performance of a 6,500 sq. ft. AC ELF magnetic shielding system for the switchgear room, overhead busway and electric room. After shield testing, we verified compliance with the 5 mG performance guarantee over 95% of the shielded areas. EMF Shielding contributed towards the Innovative Design LEED credit for 2000 Tower Oaks and this building achieved LEED Platinum-certified for Commercial Interiors.
