The USGBC and the LEED-NC Version 2.2 Project ChecklistCredit 8: Light Pollution Reduction
Eliminate light trespass from the building and site, improve night sky access and reduce development impact on nocturnal environments.
HUVCO solution: Use of louver system to block escape of electric light at night.
Credit 5.1 and 5.2: Regional Materials
Increase demand for building materials and products that are extracted and manufactured within the region, thereby supporting the use of indigenous resources and reducing the environmental impacts resulting from transportation.
HUVCO solution: Located outside Hagerstown, Maryland we are within 500 miles of 21 states!
Credit 6.1: Controllability of Lighting
Provide a high level of lighting system control by individual occupants or by specific groups in multi-occupant spaces (i.e. classrooms or conference areas) to promote the productivity, comfort and well-being of building occupants.
HUVCO solution: Use of automated daylight sensors to eliminate electric light when the daylight is sufficient.
Credit 6.2: Controllability of Systems Thermal Comfort
Provide a high level of thermal, ventilation and lighting system control by individual occupants or specific groups in multi-occupant spaces to promote the productivity, comfort and well-being of building occupants
HUVCO Solution: Use of HUVCO operable, ventilating skylights.
Credit 8.1 and 8.2: Daylight and Views
Provide for the building occupants a connection between indoor spaces and the outdoors through the introduction of daylight and views into the regularly occupied areas of the building.
HUVCO Solution: Use of HUVCO daylighting products.
