A.R.E. Awards – Sustainability – Outstanding Merit – Standalone

An integrated design approach helped this retailer achieve a continuous improvement goal — the store is 75 percent more energy-efficient than the prior prototype. Contributing to this benchmark are such strategies as hydronic heating via high-efficiency boilers, demand-controlled ventilation, energy recovery ventilation, a diagonal T-8 lighting layout, auto heat shutoff tied to overhead doors in the service center, a white roof, thermal wall panels, auto shutoff of perimeter lights tied to clerestory daylighting, and heat reclamation from automotive exhaust.

With both LEED and Green Globes certification applied for, the project also features 63 percent less water usage due to low-flow fixtures, 76 percent diversion of construction waste from landfill, 20 percent recycled content, and 28 percent regional content in building materials, and in-store digital promotion of sustainable features.
