Museum Awarded LEED Silver Certification

DPAM has recently been awarded LEED Silver certification by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) for our sustainable design and construction principles.

The project included sustainable features such as energy efficient HVAC and lighting systems, storm-water collection, retention and filtering systems, water-efficient landscaping, a partial green roof and reflective roof coatings, which reduce energy consumption by 17.6%.

WMA Consulting Engineers, Ltd. designed the mechanical, electrical, plumbing  and fire protection systems and provided energy modeling for the new, three-story, 15,000 square foot building, along with the architectural group of Antunovich & Associates.
