As a focus on sustainability is important to the organization, the space will offset energy use with a roof-mounted PV field and an offsite 10 kw wind turbine. Heating and cooling will be accomplished with low energy and/or passive strategies including heat from pellet stoves or a pellet furnace that supplies radiant floor heat and cooling with operable windows. Water efficient fixtures and high performance lighting will also be included to reduce the space’s environmental impact.
