Overview

No votes yet

The Brookwood is being designed and constructed utilizing LEED principals with an end goal of achieving LEED certification. Some of the goals for the project include maximizing open green space with the use of gardens and vegetated roof spaces well beyond that required by the zoning ordinances. These features combined with the rainwater recovery system for irrigation will result in a project site with no stormwater runoff to the municipal stormwater system and virtually no contribution to the urban heat island effect.

The Brookwood is among the first LEED certified residential buildings in Atlanta. Some of the green benefits offered by The Brookwood are:
•Use of paint and carpeting systems that reduce indoor air contaminants
•Pressurized hallways to provide continuous fresh air
•Abundant use of glass for added sunlight
•Pre-conditioned outdoor air ventilation and monitoring
•Bicycle parking and storage areas
•Energy Star Appliances
•Water-source heat pumps fed by cooling tower for lower costs
•Low-emissivity glass for better insulation
•Recycling chute
•Energy efficient insulation throughout
•Use of rainwater to irrigate gardens
