The new offices provide:

• Secretarial spaces to support the various office functions
• Two psychologist offices
• Payroll records area

• Reception area
• Board room with conference space that can be divided into three separate spaces
• Support spaces such as areas for records storage, supply room, server room, bathrooms, lunchroom, general office space, vault and mechanical spaces

Green design elements include:
• Solar domestic hot water system
• Daylighting for all primary spaces
• Highly reflective roofing materials to minimize the heat island effect
• Exterior solar shading devices to minimize solar gain by reducing the amount of sun shining on window areas during peak cooling season
• Low VOCs (volatile organic compounds) and recycled content containing finishes
• Integral thin film photovoltaic solar panels on the metal roofing that generate electricity
• Daylight sensors on each individual lighting component that sense the amount of daylight in a space and subsequently raise or decrease lighting levels
