Corporate campus gets LEED stamp of Gold
The new 100,000-sf corporate headquarters for The Thornburg Companies in Santa Fe, N.M., earned LEED Gold. Designed in the “new-old Santa Fe style” by Legorreta + Legorreta, with local firms Dekker/Perich/Sabatini and Klinger Constructors on the Building Team, the green building sits on seven acres and features three distinct but interconnected office spaces with two courtyards and three rooftop gardens. The project’s eco-friendly features include daylighting and operative windows, evaporative cooling, rainwater capture for irrigation, and pervious paving. The building is expected to use 47% less energy and 43% less water than a typical office building.
