This project was originally tendered in November 2008 as a 62,000 sq.ft. office and distribution facility. Upon award, however, it was upgraded to attain LEED™ SILVER status. This was achieved because, while the contract was Design Build, our experience as a General Contractor allowed us to assist both the clients and consultants achieve LEED™ points. Through the analysis of heating and cooling options we were able to achieve the necessary points without jeopardizing the schedule or budget. The structure consists of timber and steel piled foundations, structural slab-on-grade, tilt-up panels with structural steel form, and white TPO roofing.
