A 15,000-SF single story addition was designed to meet the University of Virginia’s growing print, graphic design, and mailing service demands. It was designed with sustainable features throughout the building.
2RW’s work for the addition included:
The addition was one of the first two buildings to be LEED certified at the University. It has a highly efficient climate control system with energy recovery and humidification, a flat roof with a white rubberized surface that reduces heating and cooling needs, skylights to introduce more natural light into the building, daylight harvesting light controls, and enhanced building envelope insulation.
