This building is undergoing a major facelift, which is being designed by Tryba Architects. This modernization project will transform the facility into a high-performing green building. Once complete the building is expected to attain Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) Silver certification.

The project includes construction of a new parking garage that touts a one-of-a-kind rooftop solar sculpture. A 115 kW photovoltaic array on the garage will offset annual energy consumption by 5 percent and offset hot water energy use by 30 percent.
