The tour will introduce you to the low energy, conservation and recycling design concepts of renowned Architect William McDonough.? This net-zero energy building utilizes LED lighting, optimized day-lighting controls, passive lighting enhancement with low work space walls and glass full walls, skylights, geothermal heating and cooling optimized with automatic natural ventilation, sun shades on exterior windows, recycled waste water, native low water plants, wood floors recycled from demolished wind tunnels, solar panels and fuel cells.? Coupled with NASA control systems developed to minimize energy and fuel use for human habitation in outer space, this facility is expected to produce more energy than it uses.
