Project Description

Located in one of the greatest entrepreneurial centers in the world, Stanford Research Park, it was essential for the building design to elevate the bar: sustainably, innovatively, and technologically.

Hanover Page Mill Associates selected a team of the world’s most innovative thought leaders to deliver an unparalleled sustainable environment for the tenant, Morgan, Lewis & Bockius LLP, one which embodies the values and spirit of this technology hub.

To achieve net zero electric energy on a developer-driven market rate project, the design team focused on a high performance building envelope, an optimized low-turndown HVAC system, and an aggressively sized photovoltaic system. Taken together, these strategies flipped the paradigm of PV on developer-led projects, allowing the building owner to realize an exception return on investment.
