    AIA Michigan Awards 2010

    continued

    Energy-efficient glass and a mechanically assisted natural ventilation system help reduce energy use in the 2.1 million-square-foot (195,000-square-meter) facility, which measures almost a mile (1.6 kilometers) long. Nearly 40 percent of the rural, 650-acre (260-hectare) site will be devoted to open space.

    "This project is a thoughtful and contemporary realization of industrial architecture," the jury remarked. "The honest use of structural steel, form and appropriate materials evidences a clear commitment to providing a safe, well-lit, and human-centered workplace."
