Caribou Weather Forecast Office (WFO)

3D Warehouse Staff
Description
Completed in October 2002, the new Weather Forecast Office in Caribou, Maine was designed to minimize environmental impacts and maximize resource and operational efficiency. Half of the building materials were recycled or locally harvested. Moreover, nearly all of the total project waste was salvaged or recycled. Low-VOC paint and sealants, operable windows, and daylighting were used to create a healthy and comfortable workplace. Energy conservation measures, such as geothermal heating and cooling and high-efficiency lighting, result in 30% less energy use than a typical Weather Forecast Office. #Airtightness #CD_waste_management #Commissioning #Connection_to_outdoors #Daylighting #department_of_eneregy #Design_charrette #doe #Droughttolerant_landscaping #Efficient_lighting #energy_efficient #Glazing #HVAC #Indigenous_vegetation #Insulation_levels #Integrated_team #Local_materials #Lowemitting_materials #Massing_and_orientation #Natural_ventilation #Open_space_preservation #Passive_solar #Recycled_materials #Simulation #Stormwater_management #Thermal_comfort #Wildlife_habitat
