DES MOINES, Iowa, Aug. 11, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- An ambitious project spearheaded by Modus Engineering will not only breathe new life into a 105-year-old building, it will make it Iowa's first "Net- Zero" commercial building. "Net-Zero" means a property produces all of the energy it needs, and if there's over-production it can be sold back to the grid and paid by the utility company.
Market 1 is located in Des Moines' Market District and is uniquely challenging in terms of its size and scope. When the building was constructed in 1909, energy consumption was likely thought of in terms of the size of on-site coal storage and boiler volume required. The completed Market 1 will feature one of the largest photo voltaic arrays in the Midwest, geo-thermal heating and cooling, rooftop gardens, and design elements to create a building that is aesthetically-pleasing and highly-efficient while maintaining its historical character.
Harry Doyle, Mike Brocka, Justin Doyle and their team at Modus are no strangers to unique and challenging projects as their portfolio boasts a wide variety of complex, interesting, and historic buildings. Their work spans governmental, residential, commercial, and places of worship on sites across the country. Of the Market 1 plan, Harry Doyle states "We are at a time and a place where technology and desire are crossing paths. We've long wanted to do things like create energy-producing buildings, but the technology was an obstacle. Now it is our ally."
Lincoln Savings Bank (LSB), headquartered in Cedar Falls Iowa with branches in Clive, Adel, and one coming to Ankeny, is the primary bank partner on this $15 Million project. According to LSB's Des Moines Market head commercial lender Scott Jarvis, "LSB has been able to make a statement in the greater Des Moines area by aligning ourselves with big visions. We are passionate about the communities we serve, whether we've been there for one year or one hundred years. That passion comes through in a willingness and capacity to take the lead role.

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
