The building has passive chilled beams throughout, with 100% outside air for improved indoor environment quality. Full height atria on the east façade act as return air plenums to a roof-mounted plant with heat recovery. The Gauge also includes a gas combined heat power (CHP) unit and blackwater treatment plant.
