Stellar Commercial Building: Jacksonville, FL
Better by Design
The design and construction firm Stellar compares the performance of a LEED® Silver office building on its headquarters campus with an older office building, which is used for similar purposes. The firm analyzes how the higher performing building affects operating costs and indoor environment, using the data to advise clients. Compared to the older building, the newer office building uses 35% less energy per square foot and uses 8% less energy per occupant, which will improve as occupancy increases.
