Meeting and exceeding sustainability goals  Designed to meet LEED Silver standards, the U.S. Census Bureau Headquarters was ultimately awarded LEED Gold. The building's many green design features include a brise-soleil made of sustainable wood, a narrow floor plate that maximizes daylight and views, energy-efficient building systems, green roofs with walking paths, a sustainable landscape plan, and excellent access to public transit. Two large water retention ponds, one of which doubles as a reflecting pool, collect stormwater runoff and recycle it for landscape irrigation. Waterless urinals and low-flow faucets reduce water use by more than 36 percent. Moreover, construction crews worked around two fully occupied buildings, avoiding the need to temporarily relocate thousands of employees. The typical office floors are served by a low-pressure under-floor air distribution system. Interior zones are provided with adjustable swirl diffusers for thermal comfort control. The raised floor plenums contain telephone, data, and power distribution systems and can easily accommodate layout changes.

在每10年一次的人口普查工作期间,美国人口普查局(U.S. Census Bureau)的员工人数会临时性地激增,普查工作结束后又会减少三分之一。SOM为这个联邦机构总部所作的设计方案屡获奖项,以一栋大型办公楼满足这种员工人数波动的需求,同时不失开放与优雅的风格。

这个综合体由两个长型、低矮的弯曲建筑组成,一个庭院穿插其中。狭长的占地面积确保了阳光普照整个室内空间。波状白橡木遮阳面板可以减少眩光,使整栋建筑完美融入这个位于马里兰州郊区树木繁茂、占地80英亩的总部所在地。该项目凭借遮阳板连同水回收利用系统以及其它可持续性措施,获得了LEED®黄金级别认证。
