The buildings achieved LEED Gold for New Construction.
Sustainable features of the buildings include $3.5 million of dual-pane, low-E exterior glass, which provides natural daylighting and views, and perforated metal screens that shade the buildings. Approximately 50 percent of the complex’s hardscape is stabilized decomposed granite, chosen to reduce the “heat island” effect, and a large retaining wall was made of recycled concrete. DPR also demolished, crushed on-site and reused 4,400 tons of asphalt and concrete for the sub-base of the fire access loop road. In fact, about 90 percent of the site’s waste was either reused on-site or diverted from landfills.
