VHGA was responsible for the full restoration and renovation of the 15,000 square foot produce warehouse into offices. The renovation provided a shared entry atrium for two tenants, conference rooms and a professional library. A trombe wall covers the entire south side of the building providing heat during the winter months. Unique operable windows allow the use of natural ventilation as a supplement to the direct and indirect air conditioning system which uses 15% of the energy required by a conventional refrigerated air system.
