The sustainable design elements implemented include: Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified lumber, no volatile organic compound-emitting adhesive materials, high efficiency plumbing fixtures, recycled content building materials and Energy Star mechanical systems. A white roof system is used to reduce the "heat island effect" cause by heat absorbing surfaces in urban areas. During construction, all site work was conducted in a manner to minimize disturbance of any and all native vegetation and soil. Also, a construction waste recycling program diverted 85 percent of the waste from landfills to recycling facilities.
