  • Conservation of Materials and Resources

    • LEED practices took place before the Library opened, including the replanting of trees formerly on the construction site and the recycling of demolished building materials.
    • Easily accessible areas throughout the building are designated for the separation, collection, and storage of materials for recycling.
    • More than 50 percent of building materials contain significant recycled content, including the carpet, terrazzo flooring, restroom tile, acoustical ceiling and wall panels, drywall, concrete, and the structural steel.
    • At least 20 percent of the building's materials were manufactured locally.
    • More than 50 percent of new wood in the ceiling and walls is certified to originate from sustainable forests.
