2008 Renewable & Sustainable Building of the Year!

PAWS For Life Animal Campus
Phase I of this Project has received LEED® Platinum rating and is only the second Platinum shelter in CO. Through LEED Design Criteria, the shelter is 46% more efficient than normal design. Located on 7 acres, and when completed, the campus will include a state-of-the-art 25,000 sq. ft, animal shelter, a doggie daycare, an emergency vet clinic, an animal agility course and a bark park. A 70Kw solar array provides power for the buildings. Eventually, the animal shelter will utilize geothermal energy for heating and cooling and have room for more than 150 animals! 

Maple Leaf Orthopedics Building
- 2008 Colorado Renewable & Sustainable Building of the Year Award and Southern Colorado's first ever LEED® certified Gold.  The honors recognize the Maple Leaf Building as one of the 'greenest' buildings ever built in the state. The building utilizes 180 solar modules for more than 70% of the buildings electric needs and geothermal for heating and cooling. Inside, much of the lighting will come from light tubes and windows. All paints, stains, glues and sealants are low or no VOC for optimal IAQ (Indoor air quality). All flooring in the building is either recycleable or made with recycled content. Cabinets are made from wheat board. A great example of a 'healthy' healthcare buidling! This building was awarded the CRES Green Building of The Year in 2008.
Solar Village - Our vision for a multi-use live work community that will incorporate solar energy, green building, energy efficient design, as well as be healthy for the occupants.  First floor will offer space for shops, restaurants or small grocery store. Upper floors will be eco-friendly, affordable residential living spaces ranging from 800 to over 2000 square feet per unit.

Lamkin Loft Project
- Sustainable Building Concepts created a green living space in an 1800's historic warehouse. Project features include renewable materials for floors, counter tops and fabrics.  Low and no voc paints and stains help improve IAQ. Energy efficient, applicances, low-e windows and doors to maximize energy efficiency.
