30 • FOODSERVICE EQUIPMENT & SUPPLIES • DECEMBER 2017 facility design p r o j e c t o f t h e m o n t h A large beverage island contains two large fountain drink dispensers on one side and coffee and tea brewers on the other side. Sustainable Highlights The ventilation system automatically balances the volume of air with the amount of cooking performed underneath the hood, thereby reducing exhaust volumes. "This was a key pri- ority for this particular project because of the CFM limits," Iaia says. The designers also specified Energy Star equipment when available to satisfy LEED requirements and create a sustainable environment. A few of the LEED Platinum certification highlights include: ● 62 percent energy cost reduction through the use of ef- ficient MEP systems and a cogeneration facility that uses a natural gas-fueled engine to generate electricity, as well as produce waste heat for other uses in the building ● 39 percent reduction in domestic water use through water-efficient fixtures (low-flow toilets and sinks) and rainwater harvesting and reuse ● High-performance enclosure, including exterior shading and interior automated shades with daylight sensors ● Great access to daylight ● 99 percent of construction and demolition waste diverted from landfill ● 99 percent Forest Stewardship Council-certified wood used ● Eight charging stations for electric vehicles and additional prioritized parking for low-emitting and carpool vehicles ● Integrated transportation with stops for two public bus routes and consolidated, multilevel parking on-site ● Open space and native landscaping on the nearly 40-acre site with more than 70 percent open/softscape ● Use of low-volatile organic compounds, including inte- rior paints, flooring, wood, and adhesives and sealants.
