In 2010, this building was awarded LEED certification by the U.S. Green Building Council.

The building, which has been profiled in architectural magazines, features an 82-foot-high atrium capped with an inflatable membrane skylight, a unique fritted glass façade, and an expansive roof garden. The building houses four levels of office space and research laboratories, pilot plants for scale-up testing of products, a Cafetorium -- a combined cafeteria and auditorium space, and a three-level underground parking garage with spaces for 1,000 vehicles.

The architecture emphasizes energy conservation and the use of natural and recycled materials, significant factors in LEED® certification. The building’s design emphasizes natural light that is provided to 75% of employee work areas. The central atrium is covered with an energy-efficient “breathable” membrane skylight, the first of its kind in the western U.S., which allows textured light to penetrate into the heart of the building. The custom-designed fritting pattern etched into the building’s windows reduces the intensity of sunlight. A roof garden provides insulation for the floors below and brings 1.5 acres of desert landscaping to the building, which has become a favorite respite getaway for employees.
