DPR Construction’s office is slated to be San Francisco’s first Net Zero Energy office. The challenge in this design was incorporating the required components to achieve NZE status while bringing DPR’s culture and community into the space. Much of the design focused on bringing the outside in with three living walls, giant skylights, Solatube lighting and outside air ventilation. The central atrium (otherwise known as “Market Street”) provides the focal point in the building with very little separation between the various office spaces. Moving all the desk space to one floor supports the interconnectedness of the office and the break area in front greets visitors with the welcoming and relaxed environment so prevalent in DPR’s culture. DPR is currently pursuing NZE certification and LEED-NC v.4 Platinum Certification.
