Features

TLC performed preliminary energy modeling to develop high-performance design measures that would minimize the potential glare and improve thermal comfort caused by the mostly glass facade. Vertical fins on the south facing windows and high-performance glazing are some of the sustainable design features that are projected to yield a 25% reduction in energy compared to the ASHRAE 90.1 baseline.
