  2. J.W. Corbett Wildlife Management Area Field OfficeLoxahatchee, Palm Beach County, FloridaFlorida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission High Performance Characteristics High day lighting/low heat absorption insulated /operable windows 18% reduction in energy consumption annually Recycled content in finish materials such as drywall, insulation, roofing, metal framing and concrete Materials extracted and manufactured within a 500 mile radius such as concrete, drywall and metal framing Rapidly renewable resources such as bamboo flooring Low VOC flooring, paint, sealants and adhesives Reuse of previously developed site Over 40% water use reduction through low flow plumbing fixtures Water efficient landscaping/Native and adaptive plant species requiring no permanent irrigation system Heat island effect reduction with reflective roofing materials and reflective sidewalk and parking lot materials Automatic sensor lighting to reduce energy costs Views from all full time occupied spaces Use of day lighting for full time occupied spaces to reduce the need for artificial lighting GREENGUARD Certified/sustainably built furniture LEED NC v2.2 Targeted Silver PROJECT TEAM: Astorino (LEED Services) Andrea Construction(Contractor) Commission on the Environment

  3. Palm Beach State College-Technical Education CenterBelle Glade, Palm Beach County, Florida High Performance Characteristics 29% energy cost savings using insulated windows, occupancy sensors, energy efficient lighting, natural gas and renewable energy sources 3.6% total energy from onsite renewable energy in the form of Solar Photovoltaic power 80% water reduction using a 10,000 gallon rain water collection cistern and low flow plumbing fixtures Rainwater collection saves over 118,000 gallons of potable water a year Heat island affect reduced with highly reflective roofing and concrete paving Over 40Solatube lighting fixtures to bring daylight into all spaces including classrooms, conference rooms, construction trade shops and other interior spaces Goals to meet maximum thresholds in recycled content, regional materials and construction waste management Third party Fundamental and Enhanced Commissioning Low VOC carpet, paint, sealants and adhesives Natural/adaptive vegetation landscape requiring no permanent irrigation system Forest Stewardship Council certified wood products in cabinetry substrate and composite wood doors Implementation of Green Housekeeping program and Green Education Target: LEED®-NC v2.2 Gold Project Team: Palm Beach State College (Client) Astorino (Architect, Interior Design, Sustainable Design) Bliss and Nyitray, Inc.
