Building 767 Renovation
This project converted a 78,000-SF, three-story steel-frame structure from the 1950s into a state-of-the-art research and specialty laboratory. Additionally, the project utilized sustainable design and construction techniques, and emerging technologies such as electrochromic glass and a solid oxide fuel cell to achieve LEED Silver® certification from the U.S. Green Building Council®. Electrochromic glass uses smart technology to tint the windows to occupant comfort levels, preventing glare, UV, and solar heat from entering the space. The solid oxide fuel cell converts natural gas to electricity and is the building’s primary power source. This facility is 100% energy redundant and draws emergency power from the local utility’s electrical grid.
