Floor and wall fixtures were constructed using sustainable and re-used construction materials, while custom light fixtures illuminated the store at loads 50% below ASHRAE standards—a new benchmark for retail. Indoor air quality, low VOC finishes, a high efficiency air handler and custom LED light fixtures are among other sustainability features.
Sustainable initiatives throughout the project resulted in a LEED Platinum Certification for the project, the first of its kind in New York State and only the second in the country.
