East Atlanta Library

The East Atlanta Library is an 8,000 square foot, single story, neighborhood library and is Fulton County government’s first LEED Silver Certified building. The total budget for the project was $3.2 million. 
Along with typical library features, the library has expanded computer facilities, a community meeting room, and an exterior plaza where community events can be staged.

Moody BRAC Dormitory, a 120-person facility built by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Savannah District at Moody Air Force Base Ga., was awarded LEED Gold Certification by the U.S. Green Building Council.  This $15.6 million 46,791 square-foot dormitory project was completed October 2010.  The project’s design incorporates several environmentally friendly features which strive to achieve minimal harm and maximum sustainability to the environment. The facility will serve unaccompanied enlisted airmen and consists of groups of four-bedroom living modules connected to a common living area.  Each module has a kitchen and living room.  Each bedroom has a private bathroom.  The design incorporates recycled building materials, such as wood doors, carpet and wall tiles, recycled structural steel, and metal roofing.  Local suppliers provided most of the materials reducing the amount of energy needed to transport them and adding a boost to the local economy.  The facility was constructed of autoclave aerated concrete panels.  These economical, sustainable, solid blocks provide much greater thermal insulation than conventional masonry, resulting in added energy savings. The largest energy efficiency comes from the geothermal ground water heating and air conditioning system.  The system operates at significantly lower costs than traditional gas, oil or electric-based installations, because heat is pumped from water deep in the earth.  Since water in denser than air, more heat can be pulled from water with less energy.  In the summer, the process is reversed.  The system draws excess heat from inside the building, and the underground piping carries the heat deep into the ground for the earth to absorb.
