Johnson Controls – Brengel Technology Center
Zimmerman designed a 7 story office addition for this major designer of electronic control equipment. Johnson Control’s mission for the facility is two-fold. The main priority was to generate a flexible environment to facilitate teaming situations while providing ready access to technology to foster innovation among Johnson Control employees. The second purpose of the facility is to serve as a showplace for it’s building environments controls. Just prior to its grand opening, the facility was noted as one of 10 buildings in the nation to achieve LEED (Leadership in Engineering and Environmental Design) Green Building rating status. LEED™ is a self-assessing system designed for rating new and existing commercial, institutional, and high-rise residential buildings. Subsequently, the Brengel Technology Center has been rated Silver by the LEED rating system. The addition strongly emulates the historic exterior facade of the original 1904 building that it is joined to.
