Sustainability Statistics

LEED Gold Certification

Land 

  • The design renovated an industrial winemaking facility into a high-quality visitor’s center. Landscape allows the integration of the historic 19th century buildings with a new high performance hospitality and winemaking facility.
  • Soils were amended, and protection zones were communicated to the contractor.

Planting 

  • Three trees were kept in place at the entry.
  • 185 trees were planted.
  • Mycorrhizal fungi was implemented in the soil mix to provide increased water and nutrient absorption for the planting. In turn, the planting provides the fungi with necessary carbohydrates.
  • Annual planting was avoided.
  • Low-water planting was used on-site.
  • A small organic garden produces cut flowers, organic vegetables, olives, fruits, and herbs.

Water 

  • Water is reused for landscape irrigation. All the processed water from the facility, goes to a settling pond, and is then aerated and filtered for reuse.
  • The site design mitigates stormwater runoff.
  • 48% of surfaces are permeable.

Carbon, Energy + Air 

  • Trees sequester 22,200 pounds of carbon annually, which offset an average car driving 30,199 miles.**

Social 

  • The project provides optimal site accessibility, safety, and wayfinding.
  • The project created a significant number of new program spaces in the garden, allowing for more visitors and activities. This supported increased wine sales.   
* The tree average for water interception is 500 gallons. American’s use an average of 100 gallons of water per day (EPA’s water trivia facts)
**120 pounds of CO2 per tree annually (This number is based on an average from the National Tree Benefits Calculator) One car produces an average of 8,320 pounds of CO2 per year. Each vehicle drives an average of 11,318 miles per year. (The Code of Federal Regulations - 40 CFR 600.113)
