International Finance Bank, a 158,537 SF mixed-use office building containing class “A” office space, a multi-level parking facility, elevated exterior meeting space, training rooms and ground level retail spaces required tremendous environmental leadership and LEED coordination efforts. The innovative LEED elements of the Project included:
• Extensive use of interior glazing to provide daylight to 100% of workspaces.
• Modular plan concept with frameless glazing allows for easy space modifi cation with minimal waste and construction when user’s needs change.
• Extensive use of natural and recycled hard fl ooring (terrazzo and slate) and modular carpet tiles ensures low maintenance and long-term durability.
• Fully integrated and customizable lighting, shading and mechanical management systems provide low operational costs and high-quality user climate.
The project encompasses nearly half a city block at the border of Miami and Coral Gables. Standing 7 stories high, it is comprised of a flagship bank branch, a drive thru experience that winds through the building, speculative ground fl oor retail and upper floor offices, three floors of parking and two levels of offices specifically designed and built during the construction of the shell and terraces that provide a chance to enjoy the South Florida climate and unmatched views.
