Confidential Client

Demolition and tenant improvements to 42,000 s.f. of garden-themed office space, using an MEP design-build delivery. Exterior improvements included the installation of a fire pit, bocce ball court, and a basketball court. The space was designed to reach LEED Gold certification by the USGBC, but through team collaboration, the project has achieved LEED Platinum. Special consideration was made to eliminate harmful chemicals from indoor air through careful material selection.

Special Attributes

  • Special LEED Achievement: First LEED Platinum building at this campus and the first in the City of Mountain View.
  • Pilot Credit Project: Assisted with the USGBC’s pilot credit program by vetting 6 of the major products used on the projects for halogenated flame retardants or phthalates.
  • Lighting Power Reduction: Through the careful selection of light fixtures and adhering to the client’s specific light density requirements, the project was able to achieve a 46.68% reduction in lighting power density from that allowed by ASHRAE 90.1-2007.  As a result of this, the team qualified for an Innovation in Design: Exemplary Performance point for EAc1.1: Optimize Energy Performance – Lighting Power.
  • Reused Wood Doors:  Through careful management of demolition processes, 45 of the existing doors in the building were able to be reused in the new build-out.  As a result of this, the team qualified fo MRc3.1: Materials Reuse.

The XL project team managed the administration of the LEED certification process.
