Research Triangle Institute
This project is a 120,000 square foot, 4-story building designed as part of the Research Triangle Institute’s main campus. The facility houses offices, computer labs and multi-purpose conference space for RTI. The exterior skin of the building is constructed of masonry, cast stone, curtain wall with high-performance clear glass and louvered sun shades. Additionally, there is a 500 car, 4-level parking deck, designed to complement the building. The project is certified LEED New Construction Gold. Since the building is situated in the heavily wooded portion of the Research Triangle Park, one of the LEED points being pursued is protecting the surrounding habitat. The building is a 21st Century Research and Conference Facility that is designed and constructed according to “green” principles and is respectful of the host environment.
