  5. 5. Additional Muskogee Community Hospital Features While tracking LEED® Gold, Muskogee Community Hospital is the only hospital in the United States with 100% heating and cooling from a ground-source heat pump. This unique system consists of 280 wells – 70 per field. Each of the wells has been bored 300 feet into the earth to better utilize the thermal energy radiating from the earth’s core. Water is pumped into these wells, then circulated through the complex via the HVAC system. Geothermal energy will keep MCH’s residents cool in summer and warm in the winter. MCH incorporates full height glass in the tower’s main entrance storefront as well as high performance glass and glazing throughout, to take advantage of reflective and low-e properties. The windows are high on the exterior walls and clerestory windows and light shelves are incorporated with the intent of bathing the majority of the interior space in natural light. A portion of the façade is covered with no maintenance stucco. A secondary weather wrap to prevent moisture intrusion and eliminate any possibility of mold growth sheathes the entire building. Landscaping at MCH is as innovative as the building. Xeric gardening is utilized and a landscape design aimed at the goal of zero potable water use will be employed. Native shrubs and other plants, acclimated to the climate, will provide focal interest and, within two seasons, will require minimal irrigation from the drip systems, thriving instead on the natural moisture of the area.

  18. 18. _____ and the User Effective® Advantage User Effective® Buildings are designed and constructed to impact human performance, the most valuable asset in any business. ______ has the opportunity to deliver an outstanding building that will literally pay for itself through the in- creased productivity of its occupants. Aardex and its User Effective® practices realized terrific results on similar projects. Bureau of Reclamation Office Building and Social Security Administration Office Alb Albuquerque, NM 60,000 SF Completed June 2003 User Effective® applications to this project transformed the productivity performance for these two agencies as soon as they occupied the building. Of particular note is the Social Security Administration. Aardex separated the court proceedings from the day-to-day administrative duties to produce stunning results for the agency. Case worker productivity increases far outpaced the increased cost in real estate. • Increased space by 19% • Increased lease rate by 80% Net additional cost = $316,627 • Productivity increase of approximately 19.6% Total realized savings = $1,741,525 annually – Before: 78 cases handled per employee – After: 97 cases handled per employee Net Savings to taxpayers = $1,424,898 annually “Our review reflects our very high satisfaction with the quality of construction and functionality of the building for our needs.” -Donald F.

  20. 20. The US Forest Service Regional Headquarters Albuquerque, NM 98,000 SF Competed January 2001 The flexibility of this User Effective® space allowed the US Forest Service to reduce the number of employees from 325 to 305 during one of the worst fire seasons ever recorded! The Aardex proposal to RCIT mirrors this project as flexibility of the space was vastly improved and multiple functions were consolidated. Design decisions included the creation of spaces which promote interaction and teamwork, provid- ing every employee with a view to a window for that all important natural light. It also included amenities that enabled employee needs to be met in the building throughout the day rather requiring them to travel off-site, e.g. a deli in the building, new LAN/WAN system and a more collaborative space to fit the needs of each employee. “I would like to say that it has been a pleasure to work with the management team for Aardex. I have found them to be very professional and capable individuals, always willing to do whatever it takes to see that the project is completed in accordance with the Forest Services’ needs. From initial proposal phase, through negotiations and award, through the design and construction phase, the personnel associated with Aardex have been great to work with. We are also very pleased with the quality of the space provided. Aardex has done their best to provide us with attractive and quality of- fice space, always meeting or exceeding our specifications and requirements. I recommend them very highly to anyone considering this company for possible award of a future contract.” -William A.
