Robert A. Grant Federal Building and U.S. Courthouse, South Bend, Indiana

The Robert A. Grant Federal Building and U.S. Courthouse, South Bend, Ind., was built in 1933, having been designed by the architectural firm of Austin & Shambleau in the Art Moderne and Art Deco style. The 136,000 gross-square-foot building was named after a local leader who served 35 years on the bench and 10 years as a U.S. congressman. The building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. A 1983 renovation converted the building for use by the federal courts and support offices. The building won the Energy Star designation in 2008 with a score of 96 and won the Green Building Initiative's Green Globes certification of four globes. The building is operated in a very energy-efficient manner as evidenced by an 11 percent reduction in total energy usage since the Green Globes' 2003 base line.
