The center will accommodate 350 employees within a six-story glass-walled laboratory. Fore Solutions, acquired by Thornton Tomasetti in 2012, was the LEED consultant to ARC/Archi- tectural Resources Cambridge. The new building's green technologies and designs are part of the U.S. Environmental Pro- tection Agency's Labs21 program. The labo- ratory facility employs innovative techniques such as re-using HVAC condensate for irriga- tion and using chilled beams for cooling. Ven- tilation systems in the labs will be monitored to reduce the air changes per hour when the space is unoccupied. The design maximizes the use of natural light to reduce energy cost. The center is designed to use 43% less wa- ter and 28% less energy than a standard code compliant building. Quick Read Dagle provides services for WTTC Mass.

They have taken the next step logical step in acquiring a new 100% electric ve- hicle, an "Active E" coupe. And to power this electric vehicle NorthStar happens to have more than 360 solar panels installed on the roof of its 20,400 s/f headquar- ters. "Now that is taking solar energy from the roof to the road," said John La Stella, president and founder of NorthStar. NorthStar continues to work towards being recog- nized as a "green roofer!" "This addition to our vehicle fl eet makes sense for us with the recent installation of our roof top solar system. It takes only a small frac- tion of our 92 kw solar system to provide the energy to charge this electric vehicle," said La Stella. • to comment on this story visit nerej.com •
