The building has a comprehensive commitment to sustainability, which has prioritized human health and corporate responsibility. Its exceptionally high indoor environmental quality results from hospital-grade, 95% filtered air; abundant natural daylight; an under-floor ventilation system; round-the-clock air quality monitoring; and views through an exquisitely clear, floor-to-ceiling glass curtain wall. This high-performance curtain wall minimizes solar heat gain through low-e glass and heat-reflecting ceramic frit. The building's advanced technologies include a clean-burning, on-site 5.0 MW cogeneration plant, which provides approximately 65% of the building’s annual electricity requirements and lowers daytime peak demand by 30%.
