The system of 30 KW of photovoltaic panels connected into the buildings electrical grid and will supply as much as 3% of the building's electrical energy demand.
The overall lighting of the building has been reduced with the use of occupancy sensors and task lighting throughout the office space which reduces the overall lighting consumption. Also, the building is provided with a daylight harvesting system which will reduce the artificial lighting consumption by using the natural daylight transmitted to the spaces.
Sun and glare control was provided by incorporating fritted glazing and custom vertical sunscreens into the assembly. The resulting affect not only produces the building's most distinguishable feature, but also allows for abundant daylight into the research areas as well transparency from the exterior into the research labs.
With special emphasis placed on energy efficiency, the project surpasses the ASHRAE 90.1 baseline for energy consumption by 44%, or better.
The building incorporates over 16% percent of construction materials that were extracted, harvested or recovered, as well as manufactured, within 500 miles of the project.
The building incorporates over 20% percent of construction materials that include pre- or post-consumer recycled material.
