Some projects are built specific to innovative design and environmental efficiency. A great example of this is the 600,000-square-foot Federal Office Complex in downtown San Francisco. This LEED Silver project consisted of two structures separated by a sunscreen-covered public plaza and a 3,000-square-foot cafeteria. The main structure, an eighteen-story glass tower, showcases a natural ventilation system that was designed to replace the mechanical and cooling system. The building’s management system monitors interior temperatures and automatically opens and closes large floor air vents during the summer. Radiant floor heating installed in the tower’s slab floors assist during the winter months. The second structure has a one-story basement with limited underground parking and a one-story daycare center.
