NASA's newest building also is one of the nation's greenest. Sustainability Base, on the campus of NASA Ames Research Center, Moffett Field, Calif., is a highly intelligent and intuitive facility designed to anticipate and react to changes in sunlight, temperature, wind and occupancy. The building can optimize its performance automatically, in real time, in response to internal and external changes.
Meeting the White House challenge to lead by example, NASA has repurposed its technologies and incorporated them into the new building. It was recently awarded the U.S. Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Platinum status, which is the highest LEED rating.
