Water Use Reduction

The use of low flow showers, sinks, urinals, and dual-flush toilets will result in a 45.6% reduction below baseline.

Optimized Energy Performance

Includes high performance wall and roof insulation, windows with low-E glazing, efficient fluorescent lighting, and the use of reflective white membrane on the flat portion of the roof, which reduces heat gain in the summer. Expected energy reduction is approximately 24.5% below baseline.

Low-Emitting Materials

Adhesives, sealants, paints, coatings, and carpets must be low VOC (volatile organic compounds).

Regional Materials

10% extracted, processed, and manufactured regionally: The regional materials used include cast stone, brick, gypsum, concrete, and steel.

Recycled Content

10% post-consumer + 50% pre-consumer content was used in the construction of the building. The recycled materials used include cork, ceiling tiles, carpet, fly ash, gypsum wallboard, and steel.

Water-Efficient Landscaping
