08.21.12

The Chesapeake Bay Foundation’s new Environmental Center is planned to be a LEED Platinum and Living Building Challenge certified building. This means that there will be photovoltaic cells, solar hot water heating cells, geothermal heating, green vegetative roofs, composting toilets, rain water collection systems, radiant floor heating, environmental controls for the air quality, day lighting and thermal comfort. The Center will also have many other uses of recycled materials and restorative processes to minimize or completely eliminate the carbon footprint of the development.
