Sustainable Design Features
The building’s four-level underground parking garage reduces the structural footprint, saving four aces of land that would have been lost to surface parking. The building’s total footprint, including the garage, is less than an acre. A significant “green” feature is the 20,000 gallon water storage tank, which has the ability to capture excess ground and storm water that would otherwise be pumped into the storm system. The collected water will be recycled and used to irrigate the campus. The new building features a green roof which mimics a cedar glad with a wide variety of plant life.
