681 Gateway Boulevard R&D Labs, South San Francisco, CA

This four story, 125,000sf office tower, occupies an eight-acre site in South San Francisco. The building features energy-efficient mechanical equipment and extensive natural day lighting. The project was constructed using seventeen percent recycled-content materials and eighty-six percent of construction waste was diverted. By incorporating motion-detection lighting controls, high-efficiency boilers and chillers and glazing on windows to reduce heating loads on the building skin, it also surpassed Title 24 energy requirements by twenty five percent. With the energy-efficient design, mechanical equipment and natural daylight, this project achieved Silver LEED certification for core and shell.
