James Madison’s Montpelier

We have designed the heating, plumbing, and electrical system upgrades for this 18th Century home of U.S. President James Madison. The house, which was expanded at the turn of the 20th Century, has undergone a five-year transformation back to its Madison era layout.  The house contains an extensive collection of original furniture, papers, and textiles, in addition to the largest artifact, the House.  All of these artifacts require adequate environmental conditioning, fire protection as part of a long-term conservation strategy and water plan use of the Mansion House. The mechanical and electrical systems are housed in a 1000 sq. ft. utility vault 18’ below the rear lawn. The QE design included a 12- well, geothermal system which provides efficient heating and cooling for the Mansion.  The Grand Opening was Constitution Day, September 17, 2008.
