Project Features

  • LEED certified at gold level

  • 77.000 gsf of new construction
  • 38,000 gsf of renovation
  • Will use less energy than the present building, in spite of being 150% larger
  • Will use less water for domestic purposes than is presently used, thanks to water saving fixtures and use of graywater for non-potable purposes
  • Approximately 7% energy derived from solar energy
