The Treasure Coast Research Park empowers its local and global communities by setting a premier example in green technology, building conservation, environmental sustainability and development for renewable energy. In an effort to create a workplace that demonstrates leadership it will conserve valuable resources, particularly energy and water. All of the Park facilities and property will embrace “green” standards because research park leadership, planners and builders are desirous of good stewardship.
Energy, atmosphere, materials and resources for both outdoor and indoor environmental quality are protected. Energy used at the park will protect the environment and its people. From reference lists such as Florida Green Globes, Energy Start and particularly the LEEDS specifications, the park will be planned and used to inspire further development.
Buildings at the research park will display cutting-edge efficiency and operations systems. Planned landscaping will thrive as a natural habitat, an element to beautify the park and highlight its natural features. In adherence to the Treasure Coast Research Park’s Architectural Guidelines and Design Standards Manual, the park is characterized as an Advanced Technology Manufacturing Facilities location. And because the site is such, it will be managed to protect its natural resources, filter outputs and clean any discharge so that zero contaminants are released from the park site.
The Park’s xeriscape will conserve water, park light fixtures will emit no light pollution, and landscape compost will be manufactured onsite. In summary, The Treasure Coast Research Park is conscious of reducing its carbon footprint.
