This building has achieved the following:

Energy Efficiency
  • Advanced building-automation for mechanical and electrical systems saves power and gas consumption
  • No CFC-based refrigerants, which affect the ozone layer
  • Maximized insulation and building products to control heat gain and loss through the building envelope.
  • Motion-activated lighting keeps the lights off unless someone is in the area.
  • Reflective roof minimizes ‘heat island effect’ – reducing cooling costs
Water and Storm Water Efficiency
  • Rainwater is harvested for restroom facilities, which use low-flow plumbing fixtures
  • Adaptable and drought-resistant native species plants require little, if any, irrigation.
  • Naturalized landscape cleanses overland water-flow prior to it entering bio-swales, which absorb the surface water.
Site and Materials Efficiency
  • Construction waste was diverted from the region’s landfill sites
  • Recycled content was used in construction materials
  • Use of environmentally friendly products reduced volatile organic compounds (VOC’s)
  • Recycling and Composting is enforced and monitored
  • Only green cleaning products are used, banning toxic chemicals which pollute rivers and streams, and make it back into our food chain.
