- Using Best Management Practices, 90% of the average annual rainfall is captured and treated using a Vortex System. Vortex valves imitate systems found in nature to control water flows and act as a natural technological integration within the system.
- Building total energy use will be supplemented through solar photovoltaic cells installed on the roof. 70% of the building’s electricity will be purchased from offsite Renewable Energy Credits (REC’s) sources for a minimum of two-years.
