Natural Environment Design & Build

Incorporating elements of the natural environment was paramount to the project’s success. The building’s design seamlessly integrates with its surroundings, fostering a connection between indoor and outdoor spaces. Universal design features ensure accessibility, while strategic placement along major transit lines enhances convenience for visitors. Karpinski’s energy engineers collaborated closely with project teams to achieve LEED certification, with a 250-kilowatt solar canopy serving as a cornerstone of renewable energy production. This eco-friendly initiative is projected to offset over 250,000 pounds of carbon dioxide annually, symbolizing the Foundation’s dedication to environmental stewardship.
