This social justice project was also designed to be environmentally conscious. The building design was able to achieve the LEED Gold Certified benchmark by including the following: The lot was designed with a reduced parking footprint and spaces for green vehicles were given priority parking. All lighting in the building is LED, water fixtures were specified as low-flow, and appliances are EnergyStar certified. Water metering was put into place to measure and adapt building systems for smart use. The building will be commissioned to ensure equipment is running properly, and carbon offsets were also purchased as part of a commitment to clean energy.
