President Thomas Jefferson’s Poplar Forest

The initial project involved the evaluation and design of the mechanical and electrical systems for this early 19th century summer home of President Thomas Jefferson.  This masonry home has been restored over the past decade and is presently at the stage of requiring careful evaluation of the mechanical and electrical systems.  The Trustees selected a geothermal energy source with radiant hydronic heating and a partial earth cooling system.  This project had established the master plan use of the Mansion House.
