C o n t e n t s 18 Maplewood Police and Court Building Making the Case Firing ranges, locker rooms, sally ports, jail cells, bunk rooms, and court rooms are just some of the special needs of a police and court building. These buildings are known for their high use of energy. But in Maplewood, N.J., the Police and Court Building has achieved LEED Silver certification by minimizing floor height using an innovative floor framing option, using daylighting in a building where operable windows are not allowed, and installing a 20 kW photovoltaic array. 32 Omega Center for Sustainable Living Completing the Circle The Omega Center for Sustainable Living in upstate New York decided to build a wastewater treatment system to mitigate its impact on the tributary system of the Hudson River. Solar energy provides 100% of the energy needed to run the plant. All water from the campus is treated and some is used for applications such as irrigation. Designed as a practical and educational project, The Omega Center for Sustainable Living has achieved the prestigious Living Building certification from the Living Building Challenge. 6 Manitoba Hydro Place Harnessing Climate Manitoba Hydro, the province’s sole energy provider, is located in the extreme climate of Winnipeg, Manitoba. Designers realized the climate actually provided an opportunity to harness solar and wind energy to operate the building using more passive systems. A solar chimney passively exhausts air in the summer, and draws down air to ventilate the garage in the winter. Six-story winter gardens serve as “lungs” to provide 100% fresh air to the building. 4 HigH Performing Buildings fa l l 2 0 1 1
