Cassidy client View is giving the federal government an incredible view of what could be the future of sustainable
buildings as the United States General Services Administration (GSA) recently announced it completed the installation of 210 dynamic, electrochromic windows on the south facade of Portland’s 911 Federal Building.
View Dynamic Glass use a small electric current to automatically tint based on the amount of daylight coming in from outside. Using advanced and predictive algorithms, the windows transition through four different tint levels to control glare and solar heat gain without the use of blinds. The result is reduced energy consumption and increased worker comfort and productivity.
Each year, through its Green Proving Ground (GPG) program, the GSA selects an exclusive group of innovative technologies to undergo real-world evaluations in federal buildings in order to assess their potential to reduce resource consumption and improve building performance across the U.S.
View is just one of nine technologies selected for evaluation by GPG out of hundreds of applicants. The installation of View Dynamic Glass is the largest installation of electrochromic glass in the history of the GPG program.
