Kevin Kampschroer

Federal Director at General Services Administration
Washington, District Of Columbia
United States

Kevin Kampschroer is the Federal Director, Office of Federal High-Performance Buildings, in the US General Services Administration. He has created the framework for which GSA responds to the challenges of improving a diverse and aging portfolio of commercial buildings so that they can serve the mission needs of their occupants, support effective work, and deliver solid financial performance. He has devised a challenge for companies to dramatically improve the government’s ability to achieve deep retrofits through Energy Savings Performance contracts—which has doubled the amount of energy conservation from these contracts. His work on the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act accomplished the mandate to move GSA’s Federal building inventory toward high-performance buildings. His team manages the government’s implementation of a comprehensive improvement in the training and certification of facility managers and personnel across the entire Federal government (Federal Buildings Personnel Training Act of 2010). His most recent publication as a contributing author is the first medical study showing the link between building characteristics on office worker stress and heart function-which showed the beneficial results of good lighting, natural light and IEQ. His goal is to influence and accelerate industry capability and adoption of high-performance principles across all aspects of asset creation, operation, maintenance and disposal. He leads GSA's effort to manage incremental weather and climate-related risks in prudent federal investments for public safety, health and security. He has worked on developing new energy conservation legislation, in expanding the scope of sustainable design and training, as well as the creation of rigorous environmental management systems. He led the creation of real estate portfolio management; the establishment of performance measures linked to pay and budget; and was the project manager for the Ronald Reagan Federal Building and Trade Center, then the second largest office building in the United States.
