Located at the Bob Hope Airport in Burbank, Calif., the company says the hangar features include a solar array that produces 110 percent of the building’s operational electricity needs; plumbing that reduces water by 60 percent through low flush toilets; electric vehicles powered by the solar array; and  daylight harvesting.

“This project is proof that the bottom line in green construction is black. Companies can reduce their carbon footprint while maximizing short-term and long-term cost savings,” said John Picard, an environmental and sustainable development consultant.

Avjet Corp. is the operating partner of Hangar 25.
