WSP’s team designed the cooling and heating systems to be over 21% more efficient than the baseline, with other ground-breaking energy efficiency features potentially leading to major cost savings. Noise mitigation solutions were provided for the cooling towers and generators.
Overall, more than 95% of the construction waste was recycled or reused and diverted from landfill disposal. Throughout the project, additional materials and finishes were selected on the basis of sustainability, including responsible sourcing, life-cycle effectiveness and use of healthier, low-emitting materials for improved indoor air quality.
This remarkable LEED project serves as a template for other WSP medical tower projects.
