LEED Green Building Consulting/ Building Commissioning
Greenview Global served as the LEED Building Commissioning Authority on this groundbreaking LEED Silver community library in East Las Vegas, providing both Fundamental and Enhanced Commissioning consulting services to the Las Vegas-Clark County Library District in coordination with the Design Architect, Carpenter Sellers DelGatto. The project began construction in 2017 and was designed with the goal of LEED Silver certification. The 41,051-square-foot library has nearly 110000 square feet of library stacks with seven reading areas, a multipurpose room for cultural events and meetings, a Teen space, a Family Activity space, and a Workforce Connections job training center.
(Excerpted from 11/3/2017 Article in the Las Vegas Review Journal): “Located at the corner of North 28th Street and Bonanza Road north of Downtown Las Vegas, the new community-focused library will serve an area where more than 90 percent of the households are Hispanic. Workforce Connections identifies the area as having high unemployment and underemployment. Workforce Connections will offer training and employment programs and help with starting and expanding businesses. The library will offer parenting and citizenship classes, financial and digital literacy and nutrition programs. A multipurpose room will be open to rent for everything from meetings to quinceaneras and other special occasions, Heezen said.
Nearly three-quarters of the households in the area are families with children that earn less than $25,000 per year. There are 14 elementary schools, two middle schools and three high schools in east Las Vegas, and those students haven’t had easy access to a public library, Heezen said.”
