The Sequim Civic Center Receives Gold LEED Certification

The City of Sequim has received notification that the US Green Building Council has completed the application review of the Sequim Civic Center for LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) and has awarded the building a Gold certification.

To obtain the Gold certification, the building was evaluated and scored in the areas of sustainable site design, water efficiency, energy and atmosphere, materials and resources, indoor environmental quality, innovation in design, and regional priorities.

The City of Sequim worked with Lydig Construction and Integrus Architecture to incorporate “green” features into the building, including:
• A high percentage of recycled content in building materials
• Wood products are certified as having been sustainable grown
• Permeable pavements for low storm water run-off
• Roofing material that reflects sunlight
• Easy public transit access
• Low water volume plumbing fixtures
• Landscaping designed with low water needs
• Low energy LED (light emitting diodes) throughout the building
• Automatic light shut off when there is sufficient daylight
• Plenty of natural light
• Good outdoor air ventilation
• Multi-zoned thermal comfort controls

“We are proud to have built a facility that meets these high standards,” said Mayor Dennis Smith. “Building an environmentally responsible building was always a top priority for the City Council.”
