Thornburg Campus Achieves LEED Gold


The Thornburg Campus has been awarded LEED Gold certification by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), with performance numbers that make it the most sustainable building in New Mexico. USGBC has verified that the Campus will use 47% less energy and 43% less water than a typical office building and that 90% of construction waste was recycled.

The Campus features significant environmental elements throughout the interior and exterior of the building.

Noteworthy interior features include a highly efficient underfloor air delivery system, sensor-controlled T5 lighting, operable windows, low-emitting materials, and extensive controlled daylighting. Passive water harvesting, an underground cistern, and an outdoor porous paving system allow the Campus to reduce outdoor water use and direct water back into the community aquifer.

The Campus, designed by world-renowned architect Ricardo Legorreta, focuses on honoring the beauty of Santa Fe’s natural environment while incorporating the latest in building technology and design. Local architecture and construction firms Dekker/Perich/Sabatini and Klinger Constructors brought Garrett Thornburg’s vision to life.

The Thornburg Campus, designed with employees in mind, provides every employee a healthy and pleasant working experience.
