The DOE’s goal was to provide a flexible office that can be reconfigured as needs arise and redefine its culture from a windowless and restricted closed office environment, to an environment that nurtures the individual with daylight and views in a team setting. This was accomplished by co-locating all building service components outside the basic open office areas, which allows for a continuous and unobstructed floor plate with under-floor duct, power, and communication infrastructure and a modular zoned HVAC distribution system. The facility also includes a 350 seat multimedia conference center and a three level security system. In association with SmithGroup.
