The project team sought to design a new facility that had a positive impact on people’s well being, comfort, social interaction, and productivity. Their vision was to create a sustainable and energy efficient workplace that was flexible to daily and long-term change, enhanced the surrounding community, and embraced the site’s amenities. Goals included performing 20 percent better than Title 24 standards; daylight harvesting; incorporating renewable energy sources, such as photovoltaic panels and solar heated domestic water; minimizing water consumption; improving indoor air quality; using recycled and recyclable materials; capturing, retaining and filtering rainwater runoff; and integrating alternative transportation to reduce reliance on automobiles. The project encompassed one million square feet of new building space along with 850,000 square feet of remodeled space.

This project’s comprehensive solution and integrated design impressed the jurors. They recognized the team effort that led to its successful design. Key elements included its significant commitment to the use of renewable energy and well adapted shading solutions.
