- LEED Silver
The Thanksgiving Park office complex serves the fast-growing, high-tech Utah County area, and Big-D recently added to the upscale office space it provides. This 140,625 square-foot, five-story office building provides Class A office space with immediate access to the freeway and surrounding retail stores and restaurants. Big-D built a core-and-shell building with unfinished tenant space. The building includes a sixth level penthouse to store mechanical systems. Each floor is cable-ready and the building is backed up by a 750 kW generator. The site includes seven acres of landscaping and parking.
Finished interior areas included the lobby, restrooms, a gym, corridors, elevator lobbies, and stairwells. Common areas include high-end finishes such as granite wainscot, granite base boards, mahogany wall panels, decorative patterned granite floor tiles, vaulted lobby, faux Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete (GFRC) columns, stainless steel restroom partitions, vaulted ceilings, soffit and tray ceilings, and an electronic kiosk.
The project earned LEED Silver certification through the United State Green Building Council (USGBC). Many features contribute to the sustainability of the building including energy-efficient lighting fixtures and HVAC equipment which save more than 20 percent on energy costs, underground detention ponds which collect water for landscaping, low-flow plumbing fixtures which save 500,000 gallons of water per year, showers and exercise facilities that promote alternative transportation, white roofs that reduce cooling costs, and large windows that bring in natural light and showcase spectacular views.
