Project news Maryland offices maximize natural light

“The glass selected for the project is a high-performance insulating glass unit with a low-E metallic coating that is designed to allow plentiful natural light to enter the building without excessive heat-gain. This allows increased natural daylighting, increased vision glass area, and increased energy efficiency--both by decreasing solar heat gain and by reducing artificial lighting requirements--all plusses for sustainable design and LEED certification. Reduction of artificial lighting has a domino effect by reducing electrical demand for lighting, reducing air conditioning cooling loads, thereby reducing cooling equipment and duct sizes, and so on.” – Tsutomu Ben Kishimoto, Kishimoto, Gordon, Dalaya, PC
