  • Reflections: To achieve LEED EBOM Gold certification, Liberty implemented, sustainable policies, upgrades, and changes building wide, maximizing energy efficiency and occupant comfort through a major HVAC retrofit, implementing an indoor air quality management program to ensure optimum air quality, deploying “green” cleaning policies to limit exposure to hazardous chemicals or contaminants, and more.Pupil Transportation Facility: First facility of this type in Virginia (maybe the country) to incorporate wind energy turbines in to the facility. (Four were placed on the property).A rainwater collection system is used to harvest water for flushing toilets and washing buses.The facility has Geothermal heating and cooling for the main administrative building.Solar thermal panels on the roof provide in-floor radiant heat for the 70,000 square foot maintenance areas.18,000 square feet of green roof, covered with native plants, help to mitigate storm water run-off and offer increased insulation and acoustical value.This is a zero run-off site that allows no storm water to leave the site and flow in to the city storm system protecting pollutants from entering the bay and allowing rain water to flow back in to aquifers on site.Virginia Beach City Public Schools: Since 1997, VBCPS has spent $556 million to modernize or replace 29 of the division's oldest schools, maintenance, supply, custodial and transportation facilities. These improvements have resulted in the renovation or replacement of approximately 3.1 million square feet of school division assets.All projects are designed/constructed to achieve the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED Silver Certification (at a minimum). LEED emphasizes state of the art strategies for sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection and indoor air quality.
  • There are a total of 8 LEED certified/projected or pending certification schools in VA Beach. The most recent are listed below: College Park Elementary School (LEED Platinum Pending)Architect: DillsContractor: McKenzie Construction Corporation Great Neck Middle School (LEED Gold Projected)Architect: Waller Todd & Sadler ArchitectsContractor: Blueridge General Inc. Kellam High School (Pending LEED Gold Status)Architect: HBAContractor: S.B Ballard Construction Co.Reflections: To achieve LEED EBOM Gold certification, Liberty implemented, sustainable policies, upgrades, and changes building wide, maximizing energy efficiency and occupant comfort through a major HVAC retrofit, implementing an indoor air quality management program to ensure optimum air quality, deploying “green” cleaning policies to limit exposure to hazardous chemicals or contaminants, and more.Pupil Transportation Facility: First facility of this type in Virginia (maybe the country) to incorporate wind energy turbines in to the facility.

  • Green Apple Day information The school, W.H. Taylor Elementary, in West Ghent, Norfolk, has had water issues for a while now and they would like to attempt to alleviate those issues by designing/building a rain garden to prevent water from ponding on-site. We initially discussed the possibility of actually building the rain gardens for the Sept 28th event, however the school nor the PTA have a design, material list or money currently. So we settled on HRGBC leading an educational event regarding storm water and rain garden design as well as assisting to facilitate during the design/activity portion of the Green Apple Day of Service. The goal for the day is to leave with a viable rain garden site and design to bring to the city to gain approval (Qaren says she thinks she will be able to get key city players there at the charette). For HRGBC members I figured the draw to the event would be to learn how to design and build a rain garden...I know that is something that interests me on a professional and personal level. What we need to provide is a civil engineer and a landscape architect - preferably both familiar with storm water rain gardens. I would like to get them on as soon as possible so that we can do some initial analysis on site to make sure that the route we are going (ie designing a rain garden) will actually alleviate some of the schools water issues vs just looking pretty. Problem is I have not yet been able to locate anyone who wants/has time to do this pro-bono. Other ideas for possible speakers/educators are the Norfolk Master Gardeners, HR Green and or Norfolk Storm Water.
