Goetz Office Goes Platinum LEED

Monday, January 5, 2009

Comment | More

Group Goetz Architects announced plans to move into a newly designed LEED Platinum office at 2900 K Street in Washington DC’s Georgetown neighborhood. The space, located in the Carlyle Group’s “trophy building,” offers views of the Potomac River and Kennedy Center, and is located directly next to the iconic House of Sweden. The space is one of the few offices in Washington DC to be designed to the LEED Platinum rating, the firm said.

 

Group Goetz said it incorporates sustainable-design principles into all its projects by using natural resources efficiently, reducing energy consumption, and minimizing the creation of waste. The firm said the new, 16,000-square-foot space reflects an emphasis on wellness, with a completely open floor plan and executive offices and social areas that encourage employee commitment and peer-relationship building. Employees will benefit from 100% natural-light penetration throughout the office; a state-of-the-art health-club facility; individual temperature control; daylight-controlled lighting; healthy vending machines; and access to alternative transportation, including metro, car sharing and bikes. The facility will include a high-tech conference center with wine bar, espresso bar, fireplace, and library.

 

“GGA is committed to being a leader in providing sustainable design solutions to its clients,” said the firm’s president and CEO, Lewis J. Goetz, FAIA, FIIDA. “We are proud that our new offices will provide our team with a functional space that promotes a healthful environment and lifestyle. We hope that our new office will serve as an example for other businesses to improve their social, ecological and financial performance by greening their space.”

 

Goetz, a recognized leader in workplace design, and Associate Principal and Director of Sustainable Design Mansour Maboudian, LEED AP, are overseeing the design of the new offices.

 

Group Goetz Architects, headquartered in Washington, said it specializes in the design of high-performance, flexible, and dynamic building environments in projects that balance image, function, and financial resources.
