Innovative station design organizes the functions of the facility on two levels. The first floor studios, production and news gathering spaces form a base for second level administration, management and support functions. Complete energy conscious design is inherent in all aspects of the project thus minimizing energy and life cycle costs.
The integration of an internal heat recovery and storage system supplemented with water source heat pumps eliminates the need for a fuel burning heating system. The unique exterior wall system further contributes to energy conservation.
