The building is a call center with open floor planning. Levels two through five include 14-inch raised access flooring system with HVAC provided under floor via specially constructed sheet metal air highways. This system provides a constant low velocity method of air distribution throughout. Fiber optic cabling was installed under the access floor for all communication systems.
