The glass-faced Eaton Center – with its 10-story tower and two 5-story wings – is designed for aesthetics and energy efficiency.
At 606,000 SF, Eaton Center contains a mix of open- and closed-office spaces, as well as a video conference room, a two-story classroom, meeting rooms, dining facilities, and an outside terrace. Its five-story glass atrium is an aesthetic centerpiece. Eaton is a global power management company, and within the atrium, an Experience Center displays Eaton products – which simultaneously function as part of the building’s power distribution system.
Karpinski Engineering provided MEPT and fire protection design for the project, which also included a freestanding parking garage with an attached, 30,000-SF fitness and wellness center.
Sustainability was a design priority, and energy-efficient features have been incorporated throughout Eaton Center.
Energy modeling projected the Eaton Center’s energy use savings at 24.75% (24.59% energy cost savings).
