This project achieved LEED Silver certification established by the U.S. Green Building Council. The construction consisted of a tilt-up building with a raised barrel-vaulted atrium lobby. The building has high-performance glass, high-efficient lighting, and efficient mechanical systems with a heat recovery wheel. The interior of the building consists of a stained-floor lobby with exposed steel structure, and glass elements for the tenant spaces. The remainder of the core includes conference room, restrooms, and corridors.
The raised-glass element at the center of the building is the main architectural focal point. The project also consists of LED site lighting and rain gardens to improve storm water run-off quality. The challenge of Innovation Park was that it was a design/build LEED project with a very tight budget. It is one of the first of its kind undertaken by the university.
