In addition to high transparency, Solarban 60 glass offers excellent solar control, which – together with strategic site orientation, bioclimatic design and overhangs for solar shading – helps to significantly reduce cooling loads.
Named a top 10 green building project in 2011 by the American Institute of Architects (AIA), the LEED(R) Gold-certified facility consumes approximately 40 percent less energy than a similar building of its size, due in part to the use of natural ventilation, geothermal and radiant-floor heating and cooling, low-e glass and reduced lighting power density.
