Chicago, IL  |  2014

This non-profit energy consultant company challenged us to balance a strong design presence with their unwavering commitment to energy conservation. Through the efforts of the Elevate Energy LEED team and Perimeter Architects this 15,000 square foot office build-out received LEED’s Gold recognition.

With over 100 employees on a single, mostly open floor, Perimeter Architects immediately recognized the need to develop an acoustic spatial strategy. Acoustic volumes wrapped in Tectum provide the necessary spatial division for the various company departments. The custom designed overhead “cages” provide workstation lighting and further noise dampening through their shaped acoustic scrims.

Perimeter Architects provided architectural, interior design, and LEED certification documentation assistance.
