Environmental Leadership

Share This Page

A design that supports the health of natural ecosystems at all levels- global, local  and individual, and contributes towards reducing our carbon footprint, energy consumption and waste. 

Here are a few ways we are working to achieve our goal:
  • Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Emission Targets
  • LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Silver Certification
  • Storm water management through the use of Green roofs
  • WELL® Certification – WELL® is recognized world wide and throughout the architectural and building industry. It is a scientifically developed, and independently verified tool, to help design buildings and measure/monitor their impact on the health and well-being of all occupants by focusing on 10 concepts: air, water, nourishment, light, movement, thermal comfort, sound, materials, mind, and community. For example, the SNS will include:
    • Natural light throughout the building
    • Walking and cycling paths
    • Gardens and terraces
    • Water refill stations
    • Enhanced air and water quality
Did you know?  Green roofs adapt to the elements, protecting from solar heat in the summer and minimizes heat loss in the winter. This energy conservation means less greenhouse gas emissions.
