MILPITAS, CA –View, the leader in dynamic glass, said it has completed more than 200 projects in North America, with more than 100 additional projects currently in development. With over 12,000 occupants enjoying View Dynamic Glass across 7 million square feet of space, there is significant increase in market adoption and awareness. The installations span virtually all key geographic markets in North America in workplace, education, hospitality, and healthcare segments.
“Our mission has been to create a delightful occupant experience, and I am proud of the View team for delivering on this promise at ever larger scale,” said View CEO Rao Mulpuri. “The continued advances we’ve made in developing our dynamic glass, coupled with aggressive investments in manufacturing ramp and regional support, are enabling us to execute on large-scale projects. We’re thrilled with the strong industry support and accelerating adoption of View Dynamic Glass.”
View also announced that it will install 100,000 square feet of View Dynamic Glass at USAA Real Estate Company’s America Center II, developed by SteelWave and located in San Jose, California. This project will mark the largest installation of electrochromic glass in the world. This landmark installation underscores View’s continued momentum, growth, and innovation as it scales its technology to larger projects.
“The America Center project is designed to be a leading state of the art campus,” said Steve Dunn, senior managing director at SteelWave, the project’s developer. “View Dynamic Glass has been key in enabling us to realize that goal by providing a technology that improves occupant comfort, wellness, and productivity. Energy efficiency was also a major driver and View helped us reach ambitious sustainability targets and become pre-certified at the LEED Gold level.”
Research suggests that views and natural daylight help increase productivity and wellness for building occupants. Additionally, View Dynamic Glass reduces HVAC and lighting energy consumption by as much as 20 percent, and HVAC peak load by 25 percent, in a typical commercial installation.
“After a year of working in CenturyLink’s Technology Center that is surrounded by View Dynamic Glass, our 750 employees continue to thrive in this building of the future,” said LaRae Dodson, vice president of real estate and fleet for CenturyLink. “The ultimate aim of our Technology Center in Monroe, LA, is to inspire employees to develop the next generation of innovative communications products and services for our customers, and View helps fuel this inspiration by preserving our perspective of the outdoors and permitting natural daylight to permeate the office.”
