Green Building Advantages

Responsible material consumption:

  • Little or no wood.  Or, FSC certified wood products
  • High-recycled-content steel frame and roofing with decades-long lifespans
  • Concrete made with fly ash, slag cement, and silica fume (waste byproducts from power plants, steel mills, and other manufacturing facilities)
  • Recycled concrete aggregates

Energy consumption is minimized by reducing peak electric loads with:

  • Cool-roof coatings to minimize heat gain
  • Extensive daylighting and passive solar illumination
  • High efficiency HVAC:  ductless, variable frequency drives with variable refrigerant flow zoning heat pumps
  • High thermal performance windows
  • Slab-on-grade concrete’s inherent thermal mass will absorb heat in the winter and reduce cooling loads in the summer

Indoor Air quality is improved with:

  • Green label carpet
  • Low V.O.C. adhesives and casework
