ECHO
In October 2003, ECHO at the Leahy Center for Lake Champlain became the first LEED-certified building in Vermont. The building draws much of its material from regional sources, and includes a state-of-the-art, energy-saving HVAC system. The building utilizes a facility-wide digital control system, efficient T5 fluorescent and LED lighting, daylight-responsive atrium lighting, recycled-content materials, and human- and lake-friendly products throughout. Super-efficient windows and insulation systems with very low air leakage were also incorporated into the building design. High-quality materials and sturdy construction techniques ensure the building's durability. #Airtightness #Brownfield_redevelopment #CD_waste_management #Certified_wood #Connection_to_outdoors #Daylighting #department_of_eneregy #doe #Durability #Efficient_irrigation #Efficient_lighting #energy_efficient #Glazing #Green_specifications #HVAC #Indoor_air_quality_monitoring #Insulation_levels #Local_materials #Lowemitting_materials #Moisture_control #Occupant_recycling #Passive_solar #Salvaged_materials #Thermal_comfort #Transportation_benefits #Ventilation_effectiveness
