NASA Ames Green Building Side View

 

NASA Ames is currently designing a revolutionary green building. This building will incorporate the latest green technologies and space technologies to create a one-of-a-kind demonstration and office building.

 

Our Sustainability Goals include:

  • Exceed LEED Silver with plan for LEED Gold or even LEED Platinum
  • Create a highly flexible, collaborative and supportive work environment with community spaces, operational flexibility, daylight and views, operable windows, and healthy materials
  • Reduce energy demand through natural ventilation, daylighting, and intelligent control systems connected to the building monitoring system
  • Reduce, reclaim and re-use water with high performance fixtures, gray water capture systems, rainwater bioswales, and connections to local non-potable sources
  • Provide a sustainable landscape with native and drought tolerant plant palette and drip irrigation tied to building gray water
