CoStar Group is a world leader for information, marketing, and analytic services to real estate professionals. This group has a long relationship with Perkins+Will’s interiors group, who designed its headquarters in downtown Washington and many other offices nationwide.
The 169,000 SF headquarters occu¬pies nine floors of a recently completed office building. Five floors are entirely new and four floors have been retrofit¬ted from existing space. The ground floor houses a tiered-floor auditorium and field research command center, which is visible from the street. A 1,200 SF employee lunch facility and training/conference center occupy the second floor. The facility contains primarily open office space on a raised flooring system, which supports ad¬vanced technical requirements. There is a new green roof and deck modifica¬tion on the top of the building.
This phased project is certified LEED-CI Platinum. Energy efficiency is maximized through multiple design strategies such as daylight harvesting, advanced monitoring systems, oc¬cupancy sensors, and highly efficient light fixtures and equipment. Furniture and construction materials were selected with recycled content and locally sourced.
