UtahSalt Lake City-based Architectural Nexus has renovated a well-known building at 2505 East Parley’s Way into a Design Center and Community Sustainability Model.
The building houses staff and offers a place for those seeking practical knowledge and applications for preservation. The Nexus Design Center exceeded green standards with ratings that are rarely seen across the nation, including a LEED-Platinum certification from the USGBC and an almost perfect 97 Energy Star rating from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
With the highest level of sustainability in mind, Architectural Nexus purchased an existing facility to save much of the embodied energy found in the building. The efficiencies gained through the building systems, optimized insulation, energy-saving lighting, shading and daylight will contribute to more than 80% energy efficiency over average buildings.
