An Eco-Champion From The Inside Out
We mean that literally. The historic blueprint of the current building was originally two buildings, constructed in 1956 and 1976, respectively. In the late 2000s, the Devonian underwent major renovations to both the building envelope and all interior systems to preserve the history of the building and incorporate sustainable design principles.
The renovated Devonian decreased its CO2 emissions by approximately 35% equivalent to removing 828 tonnes annually or taking 159 cars off the road. Much of the old exterior, ductwork and copper wiring was recycled, while interior wooden doors were salvaged and re-used in corrals or barns.
The building’s mechanical systems, electrical systems, heating and cooling systems, water and plumbing systems and ventilation systems are all optimized for the highest energy efficiency.
