“The new AIA Capital Center is a LEED Gold certified building with maximum green spaces and rooftop gardens, efficient column free floor plate areas, energy saving lifts/lighting/cooling systems, all designed for energy efficiency and sustainability.

Energy efficient systems such as the building exterior Curtain Wall System that is composed of three layers of laminated Low-e (low emission) glass. This not only protects from harmful solar rays but also insulates against sound waves, resulting in a quieter work environment, all adding to AIA Capital Center’s green credentials.“
