Division 8 Office Building
The typical NC DOT office building is usually very inward focused with minimum daylighting and a limited architectural expression. While these buildings have their place, the design approach for the new building type expands the design palette. The infusion of natural light through welcoming entries, daylit corridors and solar orientation all provide an upgrade to the typical office building for the NC DOT. The shift in the design approach for the proposed new office building type was designed at the same cost per square foot as its predecessors. Despite the limitation in budget, the team was able to effectively realize a building which employed strategies proven to increase the health and productivity of workers, and promote sustainability.
