Our design team took a 30 year old, single story building and transformed it into Class A, Sustainability Award-winning, LEED GOLD showcase office building. The goal was to create a denser 2 story building out of 1 floor and give it a new energy efficient skin and mechanical system. Since the Owner was the manufacturer of all of the Trane HVAC equipment to be used, we offered a unique concept of creating a “Living Showcase” to display the equipment. Instead of hiding the chiller and ice-making cooling system like usual, we set it in FRONT of the building. The air handler is set in a glass box at the corner of the building. Adjacent to the air handler, we designed a “Product Showcase” with 9 interactive kiosks that allow visitors to manipulate the full spectrum of products that Ingersoll Rand manufactures.
