"Green" Building Facts:
Green Building Profile Sheet
Daylight responsive lighting controls, LED lighting and exhaust air energy recovery will help achieve a 41.6% improvement in the proposed building energy performance compared to the baseline model.
Through the use of water efficient irrigation systems, automated weather monitoring, and drought tolerant landscape materials, the building is designed to reduce potable water use by 83%.
Permeable site pavers and a green roof will contribute to the improvement of water quality and a reduction in stormwater run-off quantity.
Of the construction waste produced on site, 96% was diverted from landfill through recycling efforts.
The project is being constructed on a previously occupied site and has close proximity to numerous mass transit options.
East - west orientation maximizes the long building elevations to admit daylighting with minimum cost for shading and sun control. A relatively narrow building profile allows daylight to penetrate deep into the floor plans.
Indoor Air Quality
Numerous measures were taken to reduce indoor air pollution, such as selecting low-VOC paints, adhesives, furnishings and materials.
We seek to reduce environmental impact even in daily tasks such as cleaning and ongoing occupant education.
Cleveland Clinic Laboratories is proud to debut our new building, located on the corner Carnegie Avenue and East 105th Street in Cleveland, Ohio!
