4 Times Square

New York, NY

In 1995, Four Times Square was the first speculative office building to be developed in New York City in almost a decade. It has 48 stories of occupied space and was the first project of its size and financial structure (multi-tenanted and not owner-operated) in the U.S. to adopt standards for energy efficiency, sustainable materials, and indoor environmental quality, as well as for responsible construction, operations, and maintenance practices.

Argonne Child Development Center

San Francisco, CA

Argonne Child Development Center is San Francisco's first solar-powered school. Since Argonne shares its site with San Francisco's largest community garden, neighbor and community participation were essential to the design of the project. The new school building incorporates the surrounding gardens and play areas to stretch the concept of a classroom. READ MORE

Chicago Center for Green Technology

Chicago, IL

Designed by Chicago-based Farr Associates Architecture and Urban Design, the building uses solar and geothermal energy, a rooftop garden, and a natural habitat to filter storm water. The city invested $9 million in clean-up costs and another $5.4 million toward construction and renovation. The 1952 building is surrounded by a 17-acre site that was formerly the Sacramento Crushing Corporation, a construction materials recycler. The company was closed in 1996 after 600,000 cubic yards of waste were discovered on the site. The money for the Chicago Center for Green Technology came from a settlement with the Commonwealth Edison Company. **This building was originally imported from the U.S. Department of Energy Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Building Technologies Database (http://eere.buildinggreen.com/overview.cfm?projectid=97) on 2009-06-06.

Pierce County Environmental Services

University Place, WA

The Pierce County Environmental Services Building is located on the Chambers Creek Properties, a site of over 900 acres, including 2-1/2 miles of waterfront on Puget Sound. Pierce County recently completed a 50-year master plan for the site focused on "Reclaiming Our Resources," an effort that will gradually heal and rejuvenate the entire area by reintroducing native species and incorporating public uses of the site. **This building was originally imported from the U.S. Department of Energy Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Building Technologies Database (http://eere.buildinggreen.com/overview.cfm?projectid=162) on 2009-06-06.

Woods Hole Research Center

Falmouth, MA

The Woods Hole Research Center is a scientific and policy institution dedicated to solving the complex issue of climate change and to defending the earth's great forests. In contemplating their consolidation in a new headquarters, trustees and staff agreed that this building should reflect the Center's core ideals, support their research and education mission, and promote the health of not only the building occupants, but the larger world as well. **This building was originally imported from the U.S. Department of Energy Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Building Technologies Database (http://eere.buildinggreen.com/overview.cfm?projectid=257) on 2009-06-06.

Stobart School Renovation and Addition

616 Front Street Duck Lake, Saskatchewan

The Stobart School redevelopment project is the consolidation of the elementary and high school facilities into a single new K-12 facility in Duck Lake Saskatchewan. The town of Duck Lake it its surrounding communities have a young and growing population, so this school is an exciting component of the future growth expected to occur in this area. Along with the K-12 school component, the facility will house an adult skills training center and a community daycare center. Combine that with the town's population having access to the resource center and multi-purpose space, and this project not only becomes a new school, but a new facility to serve the entire community. To further enhance the student and community experience, the Prairie Spirit School Division and the Saskatchewan Ministry of Education has committed to building sustainably by attaining a LEED Silver Certification level for this project. The first area the project team used sustainable design principles for the Stobart School project is in the selection and redevelopment of the site. An early decision made was to reuse the existing school site as opposed to a redevelopment on a greenfield site. The existing site is in the southwest corner of the town, adjacent to natural prairie. As such, the design team thought it appropriate to return land not used for play areas for the students back to it's natural state. This will allow the site to sustain itself, will help re-establish local species, and also help minimize the irrigation required. Secondly, the design team wished to develop a strategy for water from the site. The town of Duck Lake does not have a storm system, so all water from site drains directly to the local water system. In order to decrease the amount of harmful material entering into the water system, it was decided to create a natural wetland on the edge of the property to act as a retention area for water, but also to help filter out contaminants before leaving the site. The existing schools were constructed between 1958 and 1981. When it came time to redevelop the schools, the question 'Is there any portion of the existing structures that can be saved?' was asked. The design team determined that the newest addition to the facility, housing the gym and practical arts areas could be reused. Although unsure if this area is large enough to achieve a credit for building reuse, at the very least it keeps materials out of the local landfill. As this project moves from design to construction, the design team will ensure that air quality measures are met so the students move into a clean building environment. Low VOC materials will be specified, and IAQ management plans will be created for construction. There are also plans to implement a CO2 Monitoring system and operable windows in the school so proper fresh air levels can be maintained. The goal for these enhancements is a better experience for all users in the facility.(summary imported from CAGBC database. remove this message if edited) READ MORE

Surrey Main Building Expansion

12666 - 72nd Avenue Surrey, British Columbia

Located in front of the existing Administration Building, the new Administration Building (C2) will serve as an expression of the expanded and enhanced Kwantlen University College Surrey Campus to both students and visitors. The prominent location and dramatic presence of the new Administration Building on 72nd Avenue will provide Kwantlen with a new front door to the Campus that will welcome and orient students and visitors. The Integrated Design Process has been used from the outset to shape C2 Administration building systems, coordinate flexible modular internal layouts and enhance the progressive sustainable building mandate. Key building features being investigated include considered building materials and system choices that focus on durable, local, re-cycled and recyclable materials, low VOC materials, natural ventilation, radiant heating and cooling, harvesting of geothermal energy, energy saving lighting systems, permeable pavers and water features. Our goal is to design a building that is both energy efficient and provides a healthy work environment for it's occupants while substantially reducing the long term running costs for the owner.(summary imported from CAGBC database. remove this message if edited) READ MORE
