SUSTAINABLE

Biltmore believes every project should satisfy the needs of the Owner, both functionally and financially. A building must be durable yet flexible enough to grow with its inhabitants. From the mechanical, plumbing, and electrical systems, to the embodied energy of the materials themselves, a sustainable building must be a top performer, and we have an experienced team to get you there. Biltmore has assisted many clients in obtaining LEED Certification for their buildings. Recent examples include:
  • Broward County EPD Lab – LEED Silver
  • City of Seminole Administration Building – LEED Gold
  • City of Seminole Emergency Operations Center – LEED Platinum
  • City of Doral Legacy Park – LEED Silver
  • Eckerd College Molecular and Life Sciences Complex – LEED Platinum
  • Eckerd IOTA Dorms – LEED Certified
  • St. Petersburg College Student Services Center – LEED Gold
  • The Elliott Museum – LEED Silver
  • UF Library West – LEED Gold

Read Details
LEED Platinum Certified, the facility is 30 percent more efficient than standard buildings. Using a “Building Dashboard” system to visually monitor energy consumption levels in each room, sensors throughout the building monitor activity and occupancy through carbon dioxide emissions adjusting indoor air quality based on occupancy load. Energy-saving materials such as bamboo cabinetry, special window coatings and a reflective “cool roof” combine to deliver even more energy savings. The cool roof alone is 1.5 to 2 times more airtight than a traditional roof. An innovative cooling system uses reclaimed water from a nearby city reclamation plant, saving thousands of gallons/day and eliminating the need for a cooling tower. The main entry courtyard features fabric structures (hardened to Cat-5) for energy efficiency and provides a covered assembly venue.

The James Center for Molecular & Life Sciences houses chemistry, biology and biochemistry programs. Two wings connected by a central lobby feature teaching laboratories, classrooms, fabric structures for covered courtyards, a greenhouse and multiple study areas.
