New FBI Florida Headquarters will be completely self-sustaining by 2030

The 375,000 foot structure’s exterior is built entirely of insulated window units which can withstand both hurricane and blast impacts. Not only does this feature provide excellent daylighting, the various glass coatings and metal sunscreens prevent excess glare for workers inside. The roof is adorned with photovoltaic solar panels, which contribute to 20% of the building’s overall energy use and will likely allow the construction to achieve a LEED Platinum Core & Shell certification . These elements, as well as plans for future sustainable additions to the facility, all add up toward to goal of being completely zero-energy by the year 2030.
