Features

TLC prepared an energy model that assisted the team with the selection of several energy conservation measures to minimize the facility’s carbon footprint and to help attain the LEED Version 4 certification goal. For example, diffused lighting is captured from the facility’s unique fabric roof and is used for daylight harvesting. Also, high efficiency LED lighting reduces energy costs from lighting by approximately 60%.
