In 2008, a group of eight local dentists approached Elemi about designing a new building to house their individual dental practices. Elemi designed the building for maximum energy efficiency in several ways. The building envelope was designed to minimize heat gain and loss. Likewise, the building’s orientation, window pattern, and large sunshades reduce solar heat gain and energy demand. By reducing demand, the project could utilize on site power generation through a large 16kW solar array. This building achieved LEED Gold certification from the United States Green Building Council.
