Star Pointe

Three story mixed-use office building in Burtonsville, Maryland

We designed this new three-story mixed-use Core and Shell Commercial Office Building as a compact plaza with four commercial spaces on the ground floor and office tenants on upper floors. Our goal was to create a sustainable building with a high level of energy efficiency, and this was achieved through design elements such as: • a high performance building envelope including efficient thermal insulation, high performance glazing and sun control devices; • a variable refrigerant mechanical system with energy recovering unit, energy efficient lighting and elevator; • control of lighting by using daylight and occupancy sensors and timer switches; • and a vegetated roof to reduce cooling loads and improve stormwater management. The building received LEED Silver Certification for Core and Shell buildings from the US Green Building Council.
