West Englewood LEED Gallery

Heat from the sun absorbed by dark surfaces in urban areas creates a Heat Island Effect. The building's roof is partially covered with a light reflective material to reduce heat absorption.

Carpeting, paint, sealants and adhesives meet LEED's low-VOC requirements, which reduce indoor air contaminants.

Seventy-five percent of the occupied spaces achieve a two percent or greater daylight factor; ninety percent of the occupied space has access to an exterior view.

Using efficient fluorescent lights helps to save energy while fulfilling the needs of the building's occupants.

Louvered mats at building entries help prevent outdoor contaminants from being brought into the building.
