Included in the plan is a 260, 128 m2 office, research and development building, 1000-seat auditorium, 27,870 m2 research facilities, and a generating plant that will serve as the campus’ primary source of electricity. The net-zero architectural development has been conceived as an environmentally-aware scheme, which will increase the existing landscape on the site by 350%.
