A forty story commercial office tower in Tampa, Florida was redesigned for daylighting. The methods are outlined and results illustrated, A cooling load comparison is done to determine the economic feasibility of such a strategy. It was found that the smaller cooling plant and greater perimeter office space could offset the increased building expense. Energy savings were also significant, especially for cooling.
