Construction elements that earned points toward the certification include construction waste management, recycled content, regional materials, environmental tobacco smoke (ETS) control and construction IAQ management plan during construction.  

Architecture for the design-build project was by Stanmyre + Noel Architects of Reston, Virginia.
