Kent Hospital Designed for LEED Silver – Wins Gold!

 

When designers at SBA set a goal, we work endlessly to make sure those goals are achieved. But how delightful it is when we find out that our products exceed even our own high expectations!

In 2013, we completed a new 66,500 square-foot Ambulatory Services Pavilion for Kent Hospital, the second largest hospital in Rhode Island. Working in tandem with Kent, our design team and engineers developed the Pavilion to meet the standards of LEED, the U.S. Green Building Council’s certification program for sustainable and green building practices. The Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design initiative provides a rating system for new construction, where points can be earned for sustainable and efficient building options in various credit categories like water efficiency, energy performance, indoor environmental quality, and sustainable materials.

Kent Hospital New Wing - Warwick, RI

Our project goal was to aim for the “Silver” LEED rating, which would accrue 50-59 points and reflect a number of green building options along with our integrative design processes. To our great pleasure, however, the project has received the higher “Gold” certification rating, which represents projects with ten to twenty more credit points than Silver.

Many design choices were made to reduce the project’s environmental impact. Waste materials were recycled during the construction process, and whenever possible we chose recycled materials from local suppliers. A white TPO (Thermoplastic polyolefin) roofing surface reflects heat to reduce cooling costs, and interior and exterior lighting was designed to utilize lower levels of electricity and further lower the building’s energy needs. Computerized air handling equipment was installed to make heating and cooling systems much more efficient. We also incorporated low-usage watering equipment integrated with strategic landscaping to reduce the demands for water.

Located in Warwick on a 40-acre campus, Kent Hospital employs 2,300 local staff as part of the greater Care New England Health System. Kent developed the Ambulatory Services Pavilion by partnering with Seavest Healthcare Properties.
