The West Englewood LEED and Green Building Concepts displays focus on the
LEED Rating System and green building strategies.
The LEED display describes each of the LEED categories and how they have
been introduced in the building. The building's Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) plan,
for example, includes using paint, coating, adhesive, and sealant products
that are low in volatile organic compounds (VOCs). The building's indoor air
quality is constantly monitored, and if the space requires additional ventilation,
the system automatically introduces outside air. The building is also a smoke
free facility. In addition, the materials used in the design of the building
were selected because they provide healthier indoor environments, help conserve
natural resources, were regionally produced, or reduce waste.
The Green Building Concepts display describes topics including: passive solar
design, energy and water conservation, window glazing, indoor air pollution
and green building materials. The question and answer approach allows visitors
to discover various aspects of green building.
