NGCA is the first project in the world to obtain both Living Building Challenge and WELL Building Certification (both still pending). Addressing multiple elements of the design and construction process beyond what has become the norm of the LEED-green world, LBC / WELL attempts to provide well-designed environments that have a low total carbon footprint in material sourcing and installation, as well as in actual performance. Layering both of these requirements onto this project resulted in a hyper-green product well suited for the environmentally-based client. MH/A collaborated with Leddy Maytum Stacy Architects to bring this project to fruition.
