To meet the LEED goals, during construction the project team implemented an Erosion and Sedimentation Control (ESC) Plan to prevent the loss of soil by stormwater runoff and/or wind erosion. A temporary sediment filter was installed at the inlet to the storm sewer culverts to prevent sedimentation of storm sewers and receiving streams. All efforts by our team demonstrated a 15 percent improvement below ASHRAE Standard 90.1-2007 in the proposed building performance rating.
