Overview

Palmetto Bay’s Municipal Building is the first LEED Platinum-certified building in Miami-Dade County and is net-zero energy ready, as additional PV is funded.

Features

TLC used energy modeling to optimize the building shell, focusing on the building orientation, insulation, glazing percentage and location to minimize solar heat gain and daylight harvesting. The overall energy consumption was reduced by 36% compared to an ASHRAE 90.1 2007 Appendix G baseline. Water consumption was reduced by over 50%.
