Green
Property: Commercial
LEED: LEED CI Silver 2011
Size: 57015

Through an integrated design process, the building has incorporated sustainable features such as daylighting of open office and core areas, efficient HVAC systems zoned for thermal comfort based on building orientation, Energy Star compliant office equipment and appliances, sustainably harvested wood certified by the Forest Stewardship Council, low/no VOC building materials and low-emitting furniture systems. 

Vidaris also worked with Studios Architecture to obtain environmentally-considered furniture with both US and foreign sourcing – the latter raising special issues because it complied with different environmental standards than those referenced by LEED.

Vidaris professionals performed LEED/green consulting and Fundamental MEP commissioning services.
