Portions of the $124 million Deer Springs project were built to meet U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Core-and-Shell v2.0 certification standards as part of the company’s green building initiatives. Some of the sustainable features at the shopping center include elements such as water-efficient landscaping and irrigation, a highly reflective roofing system that reduces the heat island effect, and the use of building materials that contain high levels of recycled content. The project also implemented an aggressive construction waste management program that diverted over 138 tons of waste from the landfill, more than 75% of the project’s total waste stream.
