We look forward to working with PURO to improve the Indoor Air Quality in the GSA’s buildings for the clients they serve.”


According to GSA, “The Green Proving Ground program leverages GSA’s real estate portfolio to evaluate innovative building technologies. The program aims to drive down operational costs in federal buildings and help lead market transformation through the deployment of new technologies.” This program is a partnership with U.S. Department of Energy’s national laboratories to identify emerging technologies with broad deployment potential for GSA to test and validate real-world performance in GSA’s real estate portfolio.

Per GSA, “The GPG program leverages GSA’s extensive real estate portfolio to evaluate innovative building technologies in real-world settings. The evaluations are intended to validate the technical and operational characteristics of the technologies and their potential for future wide-scale adoption. GSA anticipates that the results of this year’s evaluations will be available in 2025. Evaluation results help GSA make sound investment decisions in next-generation building technologies. Since 2011, GPG has evaluated 104 technologies, 23 of which have been deployed across more than a third of GSA’s federally owned portfolio, avoiding 116,000 annual tons of CO2 and delivering $28 million in annual cost avoidance.
