Human beings are asking the deepest questions of all time. People want to be inspired by their workspace, where they spend the best hours of their lives. Gone are the days of working in a building that is too hot, or too cold.
The LandWorks Center is designed for human comfort. Daylight Harvesting System provides more sunlight with no glare. Light shelves automatically rotate to bring in 100% more sunlight while controlling glare. Operable windows let in outside air and the relaxing sounds of nature. 11 feet of high performance glass allow better connection with nature. Pressurized under-floor plenum supplies fresh air, temperature and air flow, personally adjusted by occupants. Above-floor space is normal pressure, not high pressure, for healthier breathing space.
Young workers demand a healthy environment. Daylight, sunlight, fresh air through operable windows, normal pressure workspace, and personal control of fresh air and temperature lead to a healthier workspace increasing productivity.
Modern day companies demand flexibility. Fast companies need speed to market, speed in innovation and collaboration available only in flexible spaces. Under-floor “plug and play” availability of voice / data / power allows for absolute flexibility in assembling and reassembling teams. Backbones of new buildings are so sophisticated that they are aligned with security, temperature reading, air quality (CO2 and O2), light level, time in and out of work, and employee identification.
Cost Savings: The building’s raised floor system reduces systems furniture and voice and data cabling costs by 15 to 25%, office churn and reorganization 80% savings. Save $9 to $14 per square foot per year in operational costs, with 50-60% energy savings including using 0.6 to 0.7 watts per square foot of light compared to conventional buildings use of 1.5 to 1.8 watts/square foot.
Sustainability: The LandWorks Center in Fishkill, New York is a proposed LEED Platinum energy efficient, high performance, glass, steel & Douglas fir human comfort workspace. This building is the brainchild of Orthopedic Spinal Surgeon Dr. Kenneth Hansraj ( www.DrKen.us) 845-471-9200, and internationally recognized master architect Dermot J. Sweeny ( www.andco.com) 416-971-6252.
