Sustainability Statistics

Planting 

  • 150 trees were planted, including palo verde, European olive, mesquite, and California sycamore.
  • Canary Island pine trees along Jefferson Avenue were saved.
  • Low water usage planting was used on-site.

Water 

  • There are seven roof terraces installed on campus to reduce the heat island effect and provide enjoyment to the users.
  • Water is reclaimed for landscape irrigation.
  • The design reduces outdoor water by using low-water plant species.

Carbon, Energy + Air 

  • The planting strategy reduces temperatures in urban areas.
  • The project reduces light pollution by using cutoff lights.
  • Exposure to environmental tobacco smoke was minimized by prohibiting smoking on-site.
  • The trees sequester 18,000 pounds of carbon annually, which offset an average car driving 24,486 miles.**

Economics 

  • Maintenance savings and longevity were considered in the design. A maintenance booklet was given to the clients after installation to ensure proper upkeep.  

Waste 

  • Materials not needed on-site were recycled.
**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)
