BNIM designed the recently completed, energy efficient office building to house the Iowa Utilities Board (IUB) and the Office of the Consumer Advocate (OCA). An infill development on the State of Iowa Capitol Complex in Downtown Des Moines, the project was developed on a challenging, awkwardly proportioned landfill site and serves to create a gateway to the complex at its southeast corner. The building will serve as a testament to the sustainable stewardship of the State of Iowa. It is a model energy efficient office building demonstrating proven, cost-effective energy efficiency measures for new construction.
