Sustainable Site: Parking for low emission vehicles and use of vegetation that eliminates storm water run-off, while providing shade to keep blacktop from generating heat is used.
Water Efficiency: Landscaping that requires no irrigation is used, as is a a system for collecting rain water on the roof, which is used for flushing toilets.
Energy and Atmosphere: Photovoltaic cells are used to create energy and block excessive sunlight. Windows are used strategically, as a source of light. Energy efficient desk lamps are used in favor of overhead light.
Materials and Resources: Use of recycled building materials will exceed 20%, and 75% of construction waste was also diverted to recycling sites.
Indoor & Environmental Quality- Extensive venting will prevent pollution during construction. An efficient air pumping system will provide above average levels of fresh air, which will be carefully monitored. A minimum of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC), commonly found in such things as carpeting and furniture will be used.
