Background

The Airports Authority is currently reviewing the 2014 edition of the Design Manual.  This review includes an analysis of the existing standards and an evaluation of all suggested revisions submitted by staff and professionals in service to the Airports Authority.  The next edition of the Design Manual ("2020 Design Manual") will incorporate all modifications and additions adopted during the Airports Authority's review.  It is the Airports Authority's desire that this round of manual revision also incorporates a comprehensive energy ********** strategy to guide the planning, design, construction and operation of airports and Dulles Toll Road infrastructure, buildings, vehicles and systems for maximum **********, sustainability, resilience and cost effectiveness.   To that end, the revisions to the Design Manual will include additional measures and requirements needed to achieve agreed upon sustainability goals for the Airports Authority.

The sustainability plan and comprehensive energy strategy to be developed by NREL will inform some of the updates to the 2020 Design Manual.  As a result, the selected firm will work closely with NREL in the review of current Design Manual suggested revisions, and required updates, as well as the production and distribution processes associated with the 2020 Design Manual. To ensure close collaboration between NREL and the selected firm, NREL is managing the subcontracting process on behalf of the Airports Authority.
