In addition to the turbines, the building reduced its energy consumption by 45%. Good daylight, natural ventilation, night flushing and the aforementioned wind turbines all contributed to achieve this goal. FSC timber, water efficient fixtures, rainwater tanks, and reduced thermal mass also contributed to the environmental credentials of this building.

All of the projects the AIA chose show remarkable achievements in the areas of community, bioclimatic design, daylighting and air quality, good use of healthy materials, and great design for adaptability, versatility, and durability. In other words, everything that you would be looking for in a kick ass green architecture project.
