Dover Public Library Achieves LEED Gold Certification
Becker Morgan Group is pleased to announce Dover Public Library achieved LEED Gold Certification from the United States Green Building Council. LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification is the recognized standard for measuring building sustainability and is the culmination of a rigorous third party review process confirming the facilities have achieved the environmental goals set forth by the rating system. The new 46,000 sf library features green roof technology, bio filtration stormwater system, and geothermal HVAC. The project encompasses pedestrian / bicycle hardscape improvements, a reading garden and realignment of existing utility infrastructure. Becker Morgan Group provided Civil Engineering, Surveying, and acted as Associate Architect and local representative in conjunction with Holzman Moss Bottino Architecture as prime.
