Bowers + Kubota Aualii Warehouse and Office Space

LEED Gold Certified

The Aualii Warehouse, a Design-Build project, achieved dual certifications through the US Green Building Council’s LEED program; LEED Gold for the Core and Shell and LEED Gold for Commercial Interiors. This office/warehouse space consists of a two story, pre-fabricated, steel frame building and demonstrates a commitment to sustainability through unique and renewable design features such as: installation of large ceiling fans to efficiently circulate air conditioned air which decreased the energy required to cool the space by 39%; motion activated/low flow faucets and dual flushing toilets in the restrooms which decreased the water usage by 52%; the installation of photovoltaic panels on the roof that provides over 90% of the building’s on-site renewable energy; and the use of “smart” motion and light sensors along with skylights to provide a 20% reduction of lighting densities.
