As part of the Central Florida Research Park (CFRP), the LEED-certified Discovery TechCenter is located in close proximity to the University of Florida. Perfectly connected to the Alafaya Trail (Highway 434) and the East West Expressway (Highway 408), the Technopark is an ideal solution for many demanding companies. The buildings were designed and engineered to provide for large extension areas that can be built out for efficiency and layout of modular furniture depending on individual tenant requirements. The entire Technopark was built to LEED-CS Gold Standards and is therefore a real rarity in the USA as well as worldwide. With a total energy consumption that is significantly lower than that of comparable properties, the benefits include operating cost savings, environmental stewardship, higher work productivity levels and employee satisfaction. The sustainable overall concept is also supported by intelligent building automation and a sustainable water cycle with rainwater harvesting systems, and innovative wastewater technologies.
