The Division of Fisheries and Wildlife Headquarters is the first zero net energy designed state funded office building for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. The LEED Platinum certified Headquarters is home to 120 full time staff and thousands of annual visitors and sits among 1,000 acres of managed conservation land. The building envelope of structurally insulated panels (SIPs) and tripled glazing ensures low energy demands, 98% of which were met in its first year of operation with a 290kW photovoltaic array and ground source energy exchange system. The surrounding landscape provides universal accessibility and breathtaking views over the adjacent conservation land along with rainwater collection to recharge the aquifers. The interior continues to promote the agency’s commitment to conservation and education with views to the outdoors, ample natural light and a soothing indoor waterfall and live trout pond. Sustainably sourced, salvaged and recycled materials add to the natural palette while an open office layout promotes healthy interaction among occupants. The Headquarters aims to create a truly transformative workplace and public destination in a memorable work of architecture within the public sector.
