This wall section showcase the building wall and roof assemblies and the use of natural resources such as wood in exterior and interior, green roofs, and proper use of natural light through spaces. This highlights the exterior wall details and how it focuses in efficiency and sustainability. Resource efficiency is essential for sustained economic growth and wood is one of the best natural resources out there. This wall section also highlights the green roof that will help to provide shade, remove the heat from air, and reduce the roof temperature and surrounding air. The large curtain wall to achieve natural light through spaces and to reduce energy use in heating and cooling. The structural member of the building will have the same material as the existing building which is heavy timber and wood frame. The heavy timber and wood frame will be exposed to show the structure inside, and show the aesthetics of the building interior. This adaptive reuse focuses on the sustainable design and how the building is connected to the environment and nature that is surrounding the site.
