JRS applied the Green Globes rating system to reduce the carbon footprint of this ground up prototype branch. The building’s envelope consists of continuous insulation that exceeds NEC requirements. Inside, programmable lighting and HVAC systems operate in concert with work hours and room temperatures.
Utilizing our 8-step discovery process, JRS partnered with the bank to erect a reduced carbon footprint branch on a designated “brownfield” site. LEED standards were applied to demolition, slab containment, recycling of construction waste and use of local and sustainable harvest materials.
For this project, JRS worked with Chase to integrate sustainable materials and green technology into their standard branch design. Constructed according to LEED guidelines, eco-friendly components include low VOC paints, high-efficiency plumbing systems, recycled interior finishes and Energy Star office equipment and lighting.
LEED Certification is the goal for this spa-like wellness center offering cutting-edge MRI, ultrasound and mammography services. Sustainable features include energy efficient lighting; recycled content ceiling tiles; low VOC finishes; and low-flow plumbing fixtures. Construction waste management closely followed LEED Guidelines. Our approach met all critical equipment and clinical requirements while achieving LEED Silver for interior work.
For Mandell’s K-8 green facility, JRS incorporated leading-edge technologies and sustainable materials throughout. Features include high-efficiency lighting; rubber flooring from recycled tires; a black box theater for student productions; a “living wall” garden in the cafeteria; and an 8,000sf outdoor terrace. JRS also designed a seperate 10,000sf learning center-library which is in a nearby residential building.
