Having expanded and outgrown their original operations center, NSB was looking for a new place to call home.

One of the main criteria was a functional and flexible work environment. A site was selected close to the interstate allowing easier access for their employees and to better service their expanded business area. Much attention was paid to detailing an energy efficient facility. Some of the efficiency measures include high performance building envelope, triple glazed windows, LED lighting and renewable solar PV. The building is expected to use at least 50% less energy than the same building built to minimum code standards.
