Clear One Health Plans Embraces Energy, Water Efficiency

clear oneClear One Health Plans expects to save water and energy after adopting a series of building design elements at its Bend, Ore., headquarters.

Clear One’s building, which earned LEED Gold status, saves 30 percent in water its restrooms through efficient plumbing fixtures, according to a press release.

By using native landscaping, the building is saving 50 percent on irrigation water, as well.

In terms of energy, the building design integrates daylighting. For instance, 11-foot ceilings allow for deeper penetration of natural light – 75 percent of all spaces have natural light.

To save further on lighting, a computer-operated lighting system measures ambient light and adjusts fixtures to produce equal foot-candle readings throughout the structure. The building also uses energy efficient bulbs and fixtures.

Clean One also is using renewable energy for 35 percent of its energy needs.

During construction of the building, about 50 percent and 75 percent of construction waste in two different categories was diverted from landfills.

Over 30 percent recycled materials went into the building’s construction.

More and more firms are building their structures to LEED standards, some in order to qualify for incentives.

For instance, in exchange for adding renewable energy and building its warehouse to LEED standards, Chicago’s Testa Produce received a building site from the city for a dollar. The site was valued at $1.6 million.

  1. So what? The company has been run into the ground and is being acquired. While the board was dozing off, the CEO and CFO doubled their salaries into the stratosphere, laid off dozens of employees, sold the company and cashed in their chips. Who care if their toilets don’t flush? They flushed Bend.
