LEED SILVER

As the first LEED v4-certified project in Oklahoma, the new Tishomingo National Wildlife Refuge headquarters and visitors center sets the example for sustainability and resilience. The new facility takes steps to avoid the conditions that destroyed its predecessor, which endured two historic flooding events in 2015. The new location is situated above the high-water mark of those events, eliminating the likelihood of flooding.

HIGHLIGHTS

FIRST COST     In addition to being water- and energy-efficient, the project features rainwater harvesting for irrigation, a solar powered parking canopy, and xeriscaping.   

INTERIOR ENVIRONMENT     JDS worked with the client to ensure that materials were carefully selected to support a healthy interior environment while minimizing environmental impact. Systems and materials were protected from the elements during construction to reduce buildup of particulates and moisture, both of which cause health issues in buildings.

RESPONSIBLE MATERIAL USE     We screened materials for their chemical contents, the manufacturer’s commitment to disclosing material ingredients, and the material’s impact on the environment.
