CenturyLink, Inc., one of the largest telecommunications companies in the United States, opened the new CenturyLink Technology Center of Excellence facilities with a technology research and development lab, a network operations center and a collaborative office and meeting space.
“We expect the center to spur innovation, idea generation and problem-solving that will benefit our customers, our employees and the communities we serve,” says CEO and President Glen F. Post, III.
CenturyLink uses its new facilities to show employees and customers its commitment to excellence. CenturyLink chose advanced electrochromic technology that aligns with its vision of making the center as technologically advanced as possible. The facility was designed and built to meet LEED Silver certification.
The building incorporates 37,000 square feet of View Smart Windows, making this facility the single largest installation of intelligent, electrochromic glass in the country.
View Smart Windows leverage nanotechnology and pre-programmed intelligence to tint windows and skylights automatically in response to outside conditions and user preferences, eliminating the need for blinds or shades, providing enhanced occupant experience, increasing daylighting while preserving the view, and improving energy efficiency.
