The Buildings

Bay View and Charleston East represent the first time we led the concept and construction of our own major campuses, and provided an opportunity to take human-centered, sustainable design to a new scale. Together, they’re among the largest buildings in the world to pursue LEED-NC v4 Platinum as well as the largest to pursue elements of the International Living Future Institute (ILFI) Living Building Challenge (LBC) Petal Certification.
