Boulder Associates Offices

Boulder Associates is a firm that specializes in Sustainable Healthcare design. Their new office facility is located in the historic, turn of the century, Citizens Bank building in downtown Boulder, Colorado. This was the first certified US Green Building Council LEED GOLD CI project in the country. The project has been widely published and has won design awards from the American Institute of Architects. The electric lighting was designed to be 15% to 20% more efficient than the national energy standard (ASHREA 90.1-2004) at the time of the project. The lighting is beautifully integrated with the building and the aesthetic character of the equipment fits well within the historic structure. Natural, environmentally friendly materials are prominently featured throughout the facility. The building has extensive daylighting and the electric lighting controls are carefully integrated with the available daylight.
