Sustainable Features
The project included construction of four biofilters — instead of traditional sediment control ponds — for the filtering and handling of the storm water; this aspect contributed to the project’s LEED goal.  These biofilters are landscaped with local natural grasses, trees and vegetation which can survive the sandy soils of the biofilter and are pleasing to the eye unlike the typical retainage pond.  The landscaping materials for the entire site consisted of over 325 different species of local natural grasses, trees, shrubs and vegetation.
