2.2 acres in size at the main entrance to the historic Veterans Administration

ZGA led the design team and furnished all necessary professional design and construction support services necessary to provide a functional, stand alone office building that achieves a USGBC LEED-NC Gold certification and complies with the requirements of the concept design and RFP requirements prepared by the Veterans Administration and Cannon Design.

The building incorporates a combination of a sloping standing seam metal roof system and a low slope fully adhered EPDM roof system. The exterior envelope consists of a manufactured sandstone veneer to emulate the local Boise sandstone; an aluminum curtain wall system intermixed with punched aluminum windows. Interior spaces include a Lobby/Waiting area, private offices, open office suites, conference/ training rooms, computer room, mechanical/electrical rooms and an employee lounge with food service center. Interior finishes are indicative of a Class “A” office space with high performance acoustical ceilings, carpet tiles and broadloom, ceramic tile and Idaho quartzite flooring in the lobby.

This project is a LEED-NC Gold certification and is committed to demonstrating leadership in implementing common sense strategies for the planning, siting, design, construction and operation of a high performance and sustainable building.
