Other environmentally sustainable features of the building and site include locally harvested timber, concrete and stone used in the building construction; site orientation and window location provides passive solar light and heat; a white roof reflects the sun’s heat to help cool the building in the summer; compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) and motion sensor lighting save energy costs and

reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
