Project Name :
Tacoma Police Department, USA
Location : Tacoma, Washington USA
The Tacoma Police Department achieved LEED Certification several years ago, and is currently a LEED Silver property. The building’s modern design features an entire wall of glass, and several atria inside, and makes good use of day lighting throughout the building.
Constructed with over 15,000 square feet of glass, the Facility Management and Engineering Team were looking for an energy efficient option that would allow the outside views to remain intact. Hüper Optik® Nano Ceramics delivered the energy savings need to maintain LEED Silver status, and to keep the beautiful views of the police headquarters in Tacoma: a well-known locale and one of the first LEED Silver buildings in the state of Washington.
Hüper Optik® Nano Ceramics films were chosen because of the film’s unique ability to preserve views, and protect the recent upgrades in environmentally friendly flooring and furniture.
The extreme energy saving performance of Hüper Optik® Nano Ceramics films delivered a comfortable environment for Tacoma’s citizens, its law enforcement officers and other visitors to the building. The building’s engineers were able to report a reduction in the average cooling temperature; thus allowing the chillers to operate more efficiently during peak load demand.
