Construction Waste Management

91.3% of construction waste diverted from landfill, reducing environmental impact of construction process.

Optimizing Urban Heat Island Performance

Using high-albedo surface materials to cover 75% of non-roof hardscape, the development greatly reduces its potential urban heat island effect, making its surrounding environment comfortably cooler.

Recycled Materials

Of the construction materials used for the development, over 20% was derived from post and pre-consumer recycled sources by cost, reducing environmental impact of resource production.

Water Efficient Fixtures and Fittings

42% reduction in potable water consumption achieved through installation of low-flow plumbing fixtures.

Efficient Pumps

Variable-frequency drive circulation pumps used for the heating and cooling systems help to save related energy costs by over 70%.

Heating Systems

Use of a gas-fired modulating boiler reduced costs associated with domestic hot water heating and centralized heating by a combined 50%.

Lighting Sensors

Occupancy sensors are used in corridors and garbage rooms to save energy on lighting when the space is unoccupied.

Rooftop Lighting

Lighting on rooftop is directed downward to avoid wasted up-lighting and facilitate wayfinding on nearby pathways, designed to automatically turn off between typically inactive hours of 11 p.m.and 6 a.m. to save energy.
