The project, designed to meet LEED silver requirements, includes rain gardens, bioswales, native landscape plantings, and drip line planters. Porous pavement has also been designed as a possible alternate for portions of the parking lot. The building was located on the site to maximize views to the lake and for the best solar orientation.

Bicycle parking, a locker room, car pool and efficient vehicle parking are provided. The buildings was designed to utilize the existing lake for the HVAC system.
