Red Dog Office Building
The Red Dog Office Building is proposed for a site in northeast Raleigh, NC. The existing site was previously developed and occupied by a private swim club that had reached the end of its useful lifespan. To that end, this office building seeks to remove an intense water user from the ecosystem and replace it with an environmentally-sensitive, energy-efficient building that will provide a suitable buffer between growing commercial retail development and the adjacent residential areas.
The Owners intend to construct the building compliant with U.S. Department of Energy’s Energy Star program and LEED Silver (minimum) requirements of the U.S. Green Building Council. The project will incorporate energy-saving, water-conserving strategies, including solar power, rainwater capture system, low-flow plumbing fixtures, high performance thermal envelope, and many more environmentally-friendly features.
Materials from the demolition phase have been salvaged and reused as sculpture, diverting waste from the landfill.
The project estimate cost: $3,200,000
