LDA’s challenge on this project was how to design a LEED Gold DMV facility for the State as economically as possible in order to meet the financial deal put forth by the developer for the building. LDA employed a creative approach that satisfied both stakeholders’ goals. The result is a new 10,000 SF building meeting the DMV functional program, all sustainability goals and developer requirements. Featuring extensive use of natural daylighting in the building prompted one local reporter to write, “It’s a great place to stand in line”.
