The Design Engineers building has two floors- one houses Design Engineers and the other is leased out. This project received LEED certification at the Gold level.
The exterior is brick and stone with a reflective roof, and uses reflective and non-reflective windows and sunshades. Inside, the facility uses bamboo wood flooring and lyptus wood for doors and casework. Time of day lighting and light shelves were installed to maximize the use of natural light. In keeping with LEED standards, the parking lot is concrete and the site is landscaped with native seeding and no irrigation system. A geothermal system heats and cools the building.
