What does a sustainable design-build project involve?

Comprised of a 370,156 gross square-foot complex, the project includes three apartment-style buildings. A one-story glass pavilion links each pair of four-story buildings. The loft-like glass lobby offers a visual connection between the landscaped entrance plaza in the front and the sports and activity courtyard in the back.

The Mortenson/HDR design-build team pushed the sustainable design envelope to a new level and is committed to achieving LEED® Gold certification from the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). Sustainable design features include solar walls in the building façade to harvest solar energy, solar hot water panels to provide 30% of domestic hot water consumption, and solar PV arrays to offset 24.8% of the annual energy consumption of a baseline building through on-site generation.

This design also has energy-efficient radiant floors for all apartment units and sunshades for all window openings, as well as a highly efficient MEP system.
