C3 was engaged to provide sustainability consulting for a large, new children’s social services facility in Bridgeport, Connecticut. The project included a complete gym and fitness center, together with facilities to support a variety of recreational, educational and community programs. Originally tasked with incorporating energy efficiency and other sustainable features, we ultimately agreed to help the client achieve the highest LEED certification possible. A key challenge was how to incorporate design changes to maximize the building’s LEED rating, without creating an undue financial burden.
We worked closely with the owner and the design team to develop creative strategies for improving sustainability cost-effectively. Highlights included:
Upon completion, the facility achieved the highest level of LEED certification available, Platinum. In addition, the children of Bridgeport had a modern, new recreation resource designed to engage them in the move to more sustainable solutions.
