Sustainable Sites

  • Implemented Erosion and Sedimentation Control (ESC) and Stormwater Pollution Prevention (SWPPP) to reduce stormwater runoff and sedimentation of local waterways
  • Building/site was developed on previously-developed site, preserving virgin ecosystems and habitats
  • Preferred parking for low emission vehicles and fuel efficiency vehicles
  • Improved the quality of stormwater runoff
  • A reflective roof membrane was installed to reduce heat island

Water Efficiency

  • Reduced water consumption by 31% through installation of low-flow plumbing fixtures

Energy & Atmosphere

  • Project underwent commissioning to ensure proper design, installation, and operation of equipment/systems
  • Reduced annual energy consumption/cost by 40% through installation of skylights and reduced lighting power density (LPD) for exterior lights
  • Project procured renewable energy credits (RECs) to offset 70% of project’s two-year annual energy consumption

Materials & Resources

  • 32% of permanently-installed building products contained recycled content
  • 33% of permanently-installed building products were extracted/manufactured within 500 miles of project site

Indoor Environmental Quality

  • Building ventilation exceeded local and national code
  • Indoor air quality management plan during construction
  • Low-emitting construction materials installed to improve occupant comfort/satisfaction
