Lewis and Clark Office Building provides workspace for more than 400 employees of the Missouri Department of Natural Resources. The 120,000 square foot office space features a grey water recycling system, photovoltaic array, and native Missouri wood flooring.
Working with BNIM Architects, Clanton & Associates designed an architecturally integrated system that lights the surfaces of the space and reduces the amount of visible equipment. The high efficiency design responds to daylight and occupancy within the office areas and adjusts the electric lighting accordingly. Not only does the lighting system consume a low amount of energy, but it also lowers the cooling load on the building’s mechanical system. Additionally, the site lighting design minimized light pollution by keeping light only on necessary areas and reducing upward light from all luminaires.
The Lewis and Clark Office Building received a Platinum rating under the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED™ rating system.
