Fast Track Construction Success
The new LPL Financial Headqurters, Tower II at La Jolla Commons is believed to be the largest net-zero energy commercial office building in the United States. In the weeks leading up to the office’s opening, more than 1,600 LPL Financial employees from seven office buildings in La Jolla moved to the La Jolla Commons facility.
The 13-story, 415,000-square-foot office tower demonstrates LPL Financial’s commitment to sustainability and social responsibility by incorporating among the most sophisticated available green technologies and health and wellness benefits for its employees in its office design. The tower utilizes three fuel cells to convert biogas into carbon-neutral electricity that will allow the building to achieve net-zero energy status. In order to monitor and manage the tower’s reduced energy consumption, energy meters are located throughout the building and all surplus power is pushed back to the grid through San Diego Gas & Electric. In addition, the tower is furnished with LED lights that feature automatic dimming capabilities based on the degree of available natural light, as well as occupancy sensors that turn lights off by detecting unoccupied offices.
In addition to these sustainable and ergonomic features, Tower II at La Jolla Commons also offers a number of employee amenities, including an on-site health and fitness center with a certified wellness manager and a cafeteria featuring healthy food options.
