Replacement and upgrading of air conditioning systems with new, more efficient equipment has produced a 20 percent reduction in electric consumption and an average savings of $11,000 per month, and a reduction in water consumption of more than 1.5 million gallons of water per year. The company has also replaced old restroom toilets that used five gallons of water per flush with new ones that use only 1.6 gallons of water.

Demolition materials are being handled in an environmentally friendly way by separating material types, such as metals and plastics to be recycled. In addition, the landscaping is being renovated to include native plantings, and the sidewalks are made with pavers that feature crushed recycled bottles.

member newsletters through online e-delivery. This technology allows
