Chino Valley Agribusiness + Science Technology Center Chino Valley, Arizona Yavapai College District PROJECT TEAM: DLR Group Commission on the Environment High Performance Characteristics Sustainable Site Native vegetation restored areas disturbed by construction Required over-excavation and masonry debris were retained on site and integrated into the landscape design Water Efficiency Harvested rainwater and Xeriscape landscaping reduce water use Storm water runoff collects in engineered wetlands Water from engineered wetlands provides irrigation for the golf course Energy and Atmosphere 2.4kW photovoltaic array Natural daylight harvesting used throughout building Continuous dimming ballasts controls with indirect fixtures Deep overhangs protect windows from harsh high desert sun and reduce solar heat gain Solar hot water heating reduces energy consumption Geothermal heat pump system Operable windows Comprehensive energy management control system The building reduces energy use by more than 50% below ASHRAE 90.1- 1999 standards Roof cupolas provide natural ventilation Materials and Resources Regionally/locally produced materials reduced energy use in transportation: Nearly 50% of the materials in the project were manufactured within a 200-mile radius of the site A majority of the wood used in the project is certified by the Forestry Stewardship Council All adhesives, paint and interior products are low-emitting materials Locally manufactured post-tensioned masonry provides a durable interior and exterior finish, as well as thermal mass and insulation Project achieved a 50% construction waste-recycling goal Awards/Publications AIA Arizona: 2003 Client of the Year Award AIA Arizona: 2005 Energy Award Arizona Public Service: 2005 APS Energy Award Southwest Contractor magazine: Best of 2004 Green Building Under $5 million School Construction News, May/June 2005: Rural College Boasts LEED Silver Certification LEED RATING LEED NC Silver Certified - 2005 Architecture Engineering Planning Interiors

4. 6225 North 24 th Street Tenant Improvement Phoenix, Arizona High Performance Characteristics Sustainable Site Site is located on two major bus lines On-site showers and bicycle storage support alternative transportation for employees Car pools receive priority parking On-site shade provides heat mitigation for parking Water Efficiency Low-Flush toilets Low-flow aerators on all faucets Low-water use landscaping with drip irrigation Energy and Atmosphere Carbon dioxide sensors ensure that the appropriate amount of fresh air is brought into the building Networked printers and EnergyStar equipment operate well below standard office energy needs Materials and Resources Low VOC paints Green Seals GS-11 requirements Regionally/locally produced materials reduce energy use in transportation Carpet produced by solar-powered mill Sustainably produced materials and materials with recycled or rapidly renewable content Extensive reuse of existing building components (doors and frames, ceilings, glass partitions, casework) reduced construction waste 100% of the floor, 85% of original ceiling and 25% of the existing walls were retained in construction Indoor Environmental Quality 90% of regularly occupied spaces feature direct lines of sight to perimeter glazing Green cleaning program uses environmentally friendly maintenance products Employees participate in recycling program for paper, corrugated cardboard, glass, plastics and metals LEED RATING LEED CI Certified 2004 (First in Arizona) PROJECT TEAM: DLR Group Commission on the Environment Architecture Engineering Planning Interiors Awards/Publications LEED CL 2004 Location: Phoenix, AZ / Urban Setting Building type: Office building Occupancy type: Typically occupied 50 hours per week approximately 52 weeks per year The 6225 North 24 th Street office project is an renovation of a 30,000-SF portion of a 1984 office building. The design goal was to model an environmentally intelligent, office renovation and to create a healthy, pleasant environment for its employees

5. Penn State University Medlar Field at Lubrano Stadium State College, Pennsylvania High Performance Characteristics Sustainable Site Re-use rock dug out of the outfield as fill material to level the playing field Site was not environmentally sensitive Parking shared with the existing Bryce Jordan Center Trees added in parking areas to reduce the heat island effect Alternative / mass-transit options encouraged Water Efficiency Use of waterless urinals and low-emitting materials Faucets, with auto-control, have low flow of 0.5 gallons/minute. Shower head in the locker rooms provide 1.5 gallons of water per minute. Energy and Atmosphere Power provided in part by a wind turbine system Occupancy sensors are located in private areas (offices) Additional, third-party commissioning reviewed the facilitys proper usage of the HVAC, lighting, electrical, and plumbing systems Materials and Resources Stadium is connected to an existing gray water system that also serves nearby Beaver Stadium 75 percent of the construction waste was diverted to areas other than landfills The stadiums CMU block was manufactured by a local contractor Indoor Environmental Quality Plenty of daylight is allowed into the offices, box areas, concourse, and seats to reduce the amount of lighting energy needed during the day. Over 15% of the materials used were made from recycled content and 40% of the materials were manufactured regionally, including the concrete shown in the photo.
