These principles include open, collaborative work areas, less energy and water usage, and broad use of natural light. Sustainable features include water-saving plumbing devices, a special water storage system and a green roof.


Gold Bond Building Products, LLC's Mt. Holly plant supplied gypsum board for this project. The building is LEED Platinum certified.
