WE ARE PROUD TO ANNOUNCE THAT OUR OFFICE WAS AWARDED LEED PLATINUM!

The LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) rating system, developed by the U.S Green Building Council (USGBC), is the foremost program for buildings, homes and communities that are designed, constructed, maintained and operated for maximum environmental and human health performance.

Our team transformed a vacant Nordstrom Rack into a vibrant 34,000+ SF creative office space. The relocation of our office was predicated on the aspiration to create an open, comfortable, and collaborative work environment. The adaptive-reuse project confirms RDC's belief in environmentally sustainable and responsible design by implementing numerous strategies such as: engaging natural daylight, natural ventilation, lighting controls for energy conservation, low water consumption, smart material selection, and recycled indoor/outdoor green spaces.

Our office is located on the ground floor level with direct access to the street. Large windows and outdoor patios create an indoor/outdoor experience and 20 skylights offer natural daylight and reduce artificial lighting requirements and increase energy efficiency. We are currently pursuing Zero Energy Certification by installing a solar roof system and are pursuing WELL Certification which aims to create healthy, happy and productive environments.
