This building shines over the parking lot of Trader Joe's at Hastings Ranch. And this is only the back. Around front a sign designates it as TMAD Taylor & Gaines.
TMAD Who? I park there to buy groceries. I've admired the reflected view of the mountains (click on the photo to see funhouse snow-caps!). But I haven't kept up on structural, electrical or even mechanical system design. Sorry.
Once again, I had to do some research. (What did I ever do without the web? I love the library and there's no substitute for it, but I can't go several times a day.)
TMAD T&G has designed everything from shopping malls to high-tech laboratories. But what impresses me most is their attention to sustainable design, energy conservation and LEED certification services. That's the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Green Building Rating System. As more communities aspire to build (and renovate buildings) to that standard, more companies will need to know how.
