Kaiser Permanente saw the need for a new, highly sustainable, specialty medical office building to bring specialized care to a growing number of members in the remote location of Lancaster California, 70 miles north of Los Angeles. Known for its windy, high desert climate, Lancaster’s extreme weather presented challenges in the design and construction, particularly in light of Kaiser’s goals of LEED Gold-certification. The south facing wall of the building is covered by a curvilinear glass curtain that allows the building to harvest natural light and minimize the need for artificial lighting during the day time.
Diversified Window Coverings installed motorized Mecho shades with SolarTrac 50 throughout the building, 65 motors, 215 manual shades, and an assortment of cubicle curtains and tracks.
