This design-build project consisted of a 5-story office building designed with dual-glazed laminated glass over the entire building. The glass lowers heat gain and provides interior comfort while significantly reducing exterior noise pollution from the nearby military airport.  Several solar-tubes, located in the building’s core areas, allow natural light in through the roof. Dual-flush toilets, waterless urinals and water restricting features, like drought tolerant desert plants, were incorporated into the landscape design.
