LEED Gold-targeting GSA Federal Office Building featured in The Architect’s Newspaper

Our LEED Gold-targeting GSA Federal Office Building is featured in this month’s The Architect’s Newspaper! Atelier Ten is guiding the sustainable design of this GSA Design Excellence Program building to reduce operational resource demands and contribute back to a healthy environment.

To help reach GSA’s energy targets, Atelier Ten proposed a number of sustainable design strategies – high-performance glazing, exterior shading managing solar heat gains on the east and west facades, well-insulated opaque wall assemblies and roof, daylight dimming in perimeter areas, lighting power density reduction, high-efficiency electrical centrifugal chillers, heat recovery, and demand-controlled ventilation.
