Nebraska military center employs innovative daylighting
A new military center is maximizing lighting while minimizing costs. Located in Hastings, Neb., the 59,000-sf Greenlief Armed Forces Reserve Center provides assembly halls, classrooms, and repair bays for the local National Guard and Army Reserve. The building incorporates extensive glazing in the main corridors and the assembly and repair centers. Nanogel insulation combined with glazing keeps solar heat low, and experts at Kalwall Corporation positioned windows and skylights to reduce shadows, glare, and hot spots.
