Results

  • The project fell under the USGBC New Construction Version 2009 LEED System and achieved Silver Certification Level.
  • Achieved an 85% construction waste diversion, meaning 85% of construction waste generated on site was diverted from the landfill and recycled.
  • 62% mark of regional materials, meaning that of the total material costs for the project, 62% were regional.  LEED defines a regional building material or product to be extracted, harvested, or recovered--as well as manufactured--within 500 miles of the project site.
  • Materials with a recycled content that constituted 37% based on cost of the total value of the materials used in the project. This number is most impressive.
  • In progress images show protected stored on-site and installed absorptive materials from moisture damage, protected on-site AHU Units, ductwork, supply and return grills. Superb housekeeping practices documented.
