The team recycled over 75% of the construction waste produced by this project, this equates to diverting over 150 tons of materials from landfills.
- Healthy and comfortable interior environment - Low VOC materials were used extensively and daylight and views were provided to over 90% of all occupied areas.
- The roofing membrane is reflective, thus reducing the heat absorption in the building
- A large percentage of recycled, post-consumer and post-industrial materials were used to build this project, which help reduce the use of non-renewable resources.
- The project procured regional building materials, reducing the amount of energy required to transport materials to the site, while infusing the local economy.
- High efficiency mechanical systems - The building’s air handling unit included an energy recovery wheel as a means to greatly reduce the facility’s energy usage and carbon footprint.
- The library’s location is ideal for utilization of many mass transit options for employees and patrons.
