About the Event:
Please join us for an in-depth view of the first City of Minneapolis project designed and constructed in compliance with Resolution 2006R-381. Lead by Knutsen Construction and RSP Architects the Hiawatha facility involves redevelopment, new construction, and demolition of buildings and structures on the City-owned 9.02-acre Public Works site located at East 26th Street and Hiawatha Avenue South. The Hiawatha facility’s LEED features include several environmentally responsible and money saving systems. Energy-efficient systems include geothermal heating and cooling and a white roof. The facility also incorporates systems to recover energy, reuse the existing materials on the site, control storm water (pervious pavement and underground retention systems) and landscape with native plantings that resist drought. This project is a great example of how a public project can work towards LEED Certification within a defined budget.
