Exterior lighting designated to minimize light pollution

Native vegetration used throughout the site. Over 50 ash and service berry trees are a mian feature of the landscape
LEED Certification Recommendations Funding Next Steps - Building & Tarentum Resources Sustainable Sites(SS) Case Study Water Efficiency (WE) Case Study New House Residence Hall McGinnis Educational Center:
Indigineous plants and water-efficient landscaping requires no potable water for irrigation

Waterless urinals

Dual flush toilets

Low-flow fixtures Energy and Atmosphere (EA) Case Study Greater Pittsburgh Community Foodbank Direct Digital controls for HVAC and lighting sensor.
Heat and lighting divided into 17 operational zones

Exceeds ASHRAE/IESNA 90.1-1999 by 28%

Warehouse material zoned in order to minimize use of forklift

Windows used for solar gain
Case Study
Materials and Resources (MR)
Heinz Regional History Recyclable collections

Recyclable materials ad regionally manufactured materials have been used throughout the facility

Limited finishes were used on the floors and ceilings to reduce up front resources and reduce long-term maintenance resources

Construction waste was diverted from landfills

Certified wood products which meet the requirements of the Forest Stewardship Council were incorporated.
Coro Center for Civic Leadership Case Study Construction IAQ management plan

Non smoking facility

Low-emitting adhesives, paints and composite wood

One lighting control zone per 200 sf. for all areas within 15 feet of the perimeter wall

Individual controls for airflow, temperature and lighting

Exterior views from 90% of spaces
Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ) Green Building Alliance

Construction Junction

Bonus Categories Innovation and Design Process (ID)
Regional Priority (RP) Community benefits from green and sustainable design:

design feature: Vegeteation along streets, public grounds, private grounds and gardens, and on facades, windows and balconies

design featureL High walkability charachterized by higher denisty and mix of single and multi-family residences with non residential land use; mostly street grid with good connectivity

impact: people in high walkability nighborhoods achieve 50% more modeerate physical activity than those in to low walkability neighborhoods.
With effective street scape urban redesign, health care costs savings dueto greater physcial activity would be about $92,295 annually for a 1,000 people in a small neighnorhood. For evey $100 spent in a local business $45 stayed in the local economy vd. when the same methodologywas applied to national businesses, only $13 remained local. Impact: Urban reseidents were three times more likley to be physcially active in high greenery neighborhoods copared to low-greenery neighborhoods. Tarentum Corbett St Stakeholders Tarentum Borough
