Subsurface stormwater storage and treatment systems protect Cascadilla Creek from runoff and contamination.
Through the use of highly efficient fixtures and a greywater reclamation system, wastewater generation from the building has been decreased by over 40 percent.
The building uses over 40 percent less energy than a standard building. This results in a reduction of over 6,000 tons of greenhouse gas emissions per year!
Over 65% of the waste materials produced during construction were recycled or reclaimed. Over 60% of the wood products installed in the building come from forests certified by the Forest Stewardship Council.
All paints, sealants, adhesives, and carpets used on the project have a low VOC content. This protects occupants from harmful chemical offgassing.
