Features

TLC provided energy modeling early in design, making it easier and more cost effective to integrate the architectural and engineering solutions. Energy modeling helped drive the design decisions by comparing the energy impact of various systems and evaluating their benefits. The resulting design is projected to deliver a 22% energy savings over the ASHRAE 90.1 baseline and to reduce water consumption by 41%.
