The landscape is sited between the parking facility and the medical building, offering the user a garden experience when walking between the two.
Erosion control strategies are implemented, by using geotextiles to stabilize soils.
The project conserves healthy soils.
Soil protection zones were communicated.
A 75-foot tree buffer along the properties perimeter was saved.
50% native plant types were used.
The soil profile was considered during plant selection.
The project minimizes pesticide and fertilizer use.
Stormwater features were designed into amenities.
The site’s design mitigates runoff.
Carbon, Energy + Air
A large central gathering space is kept cool with an 80-foot-long water feature and the shade from crape myrtles.
The project uses regional materials.
During construction, pollutants were controlled and retained.
Exposure to environmental tobacco smoke was minimized through designated smoke-free zones and prohibited smoking on-site.
Sustainability in material manufacturing was supported.
Materials were reused on-site.
Reusable vegetation, rocks, and soil were diverted from disposal.
Materials not needed on-site were recycled.
