The new headquarters of the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC) has topped out in San Francisco, California, US, after years of planning and construction disruptions.
The 13-storey office building is estimated to cost around $205m including costs of furniture and design services.
The 227,500ft² building incorporates several sustainable features including built-in wind turbines and solar panels and is expected to consume around 55% less energy than comparable buildings.
Other features include sensors that track the movement of the sun and allow opening or closing of shades and on-site treatment of sewage.
The facility is expected to achieve LEED Platinum certification from the US Green Building Council.
The SFPUC plans to move into the building in mid 2012.
