NYC DPR - This project was a LEED Platinum project. The project included the construction of a three-story LEED Platinum certified comfort station with a green roof. We were also responsible for the constructing all site utilities and a waterfront park.
The ecological design for Bushwick Inlet Park by Kiss + Cathcart was 2014 American Institute of Architects (AIA) Top Ten environmental project winner. The Parks Department was fitted with a green roof, ground source heat pump wells, and rainwater harvest and storage with a drip irrigation into the park’s design to provide the exterior area with the sustainment; the exterior solar trellis produces half the energy needed for the building interior. The benefit of replacing a parking lot with green park grounds was enhanced by waste management. Diverting 1.44 tons of material to local end users instead of a landfill was coordinated using subcontractor Cardella Trucking.
