Design Achievement - The Molasky Group of Companies added a distinct goal to their development mission: to take a leadership position in the industry and community, demonstrating how to raise the bar and threshold for sustainable development. DLR Group's design of their ten-story Molasky Corporate Center is the first Class A office building in the southern Nevada desert to achieve LEED Gold certification. Design evolved around a simple and clear floor plate with minimal core structure and MEP systems distribution, giving the owners optimized rentable square feet and offering tenants spatial adaptability. Sustainable design features include renewable energy generation through photovoltaics; wall insulation made of shredded, recycled blue jeans; daylight and views for 90% of the spaces; underfloor air distribution systems; low- and no-VOC materials; recycled materials; low-flow water fixtures; and the use of cooling tower water for 100% of irrigation demands, which saves over 1 million gallons of water a year. These user-focused sustainable design choices offer potential for a 20% increase in employee productivity as well as a significant decrease in occupancy costs. In addition to the architectural design, DLR Group further designed the TI for Molasky's own in-building spaces, emphasizing the building's best qualities in daylighting, openness, and opportunity for sustainable interiors choices.
Scope Summary - The 830,000 SF building comprises 285,000 rentable square feet (in ten stories) of office space and a courtyard podium over a new six-story parking garage. Retail spaces on the first floor serve building tenants. Because the building is situated on an urban site, the team responded to specific challenges of traffic circulation and potential congestion around garage entries. The team developed a solution featuring two separate, non-intersecting entrance and exit points at grade level, which enables efficient traffic patterns. DLR Group provided architecture and interior design services.
