Interface Global Headquarters
The challenge of this project was to cost-effectively re-activate a circa-1950s office building with 11’-0” slab-to-slab height, irregular structural systems, outdated MEP infrastructure and 8’-0” ceilings
After a conceptual study of 3 HVAC approaches, Integral Atlanta designed the MEP systems to align with the first cost proforma while maximizing ceiling height and system efficiency.
Atlanta helped Perkins+Will with the analysis to inform the reskinning of the building, which reduced HVAC loads by 20%. An open ceiling layout was chosen to showcase building systems. Water harvesting is a big focal point of project.
