The 12,500 square foot facility, housing more than 100 personnel, was designed and constructed under the City of Charlotte’s Policy for Sustainable City Facilities, ensuring sustainable design features. These included insulated concrete foam walls, closed‐loop geothermal heating and cooling system, water‐efficient fixtures, landscaping not requiring irrigation, day lighting technologies, white roof and preliminary set‐up for building integrated photovoltaic.
