NPCA's strong emphasis on LEED-CI Certification ultimately led to the selection of a space in a building committed to the LEED-EB Certification and maintenance process. The new location provides employees with a plethora of alternative transportation options and access to a dense community for lunchtime and after-hours socialization. The new facility’s clear, open site lines and access to views and light have already begun to forge new and stronger connections between staff members and departments. Several collaborative spaces of varying sizes and openness are provided to foster greater formal and informal teamwork opportunities that keep audible disturbance in the workstation areas to a minimum. A connection to the NPCA mission is made through biophilic influences with careful material selection and the inclusion of park images where NPCA works every day to administer critical support.
