View recently announced that it will install 100,000 sq ft of View Dynamic Glass at USAA Real Estate Co.’s America Center II in San Jose, Calif. This project reportedly marks the largest installation of electrochromic glass in the world.
“The America Center project is designed to be a leading state-of-the-art campus,” said Steve Dunn, the project’s developer. “View Dynamic Glass has been key in enabling us to realize that goal by providing a technology that improves occupant comfort, wellness, and productivity. Energy efficiency was also a major driver, and View helped us reach ambitious sustainability targets and become pre-certified at the LEED Gold level.”
View also recently announced it has completed more than 200 projects in North America, with more than 100 additional projects currently in development. With over 12,000 occupants enjoying View Dynamic Glass across 7 million sq ft of space, market adoption and awareness have seen a significant increase. The installations span virtually all key geographic markets in North America in workplace, education, hospitality, and healthcare segments.
“Our mission has been to create a delightful occupant experience, and I am proud of the View team for delivering on this promise at ever larger scale,” said Rao Mulpuri, CEO. “The continued advances we’ve made in developing our dynamic glass, coupled with aggressive investments in manufacturing ramp and regional support, are enabling us to execute on large-scale projects. We’re thrilled with the strong industry support and accelerating adoption of View Dynamic Glass.”
Research suggests that views and natural daylight help increase productivity and wellness for building occupants. Additionally, View Dynamic Glass reduces HVAC and lighting energy consumption by as much as 20% and HVAC peak load by 25% in a typical commercial installation.
