After a long process that started back in 2003, the Deerfield One project located in Menlo Park has recently obtained LEED Silver rating. The project is a 42,000sf office building built on a brown field. The owners of the building are mindful of the environment and felt that obtaining LEED certification would be appropriate because of their efforts to mitigate the existing brown field site. All project team members understood the importance of achieving LEED certification and worked hard to adhere to LEED requirements, resulting in a truly collaborative effort. GLA served as the LEED administrators on this project, providing guidance, insight, assistance and experience to the rest of the team. The original target level was LEED certified but their efforts garnered a LEED silver rating.

Project info:
Location: Menlo Park, CA
Building type: Office building
Owner: Deerfield Realty Corporation
Architect: Davidson & Seals
General Contractor: Hollander Smith
LEED administration consultant: Gerard Lee Architects

The project pursued LEED certification under LEED CS (core & shell, V2.2) and obtained 33 out of the 36 points attempted. Some of the green strategies utilized include:

• Alternative fuel vehicle parking
• Brownfield –environmental mitigation completed
• Low albedo roofing
• Reusing ground up paving
• Recycled materials
• “Green” Tenant guidelines
• “Green” construction guidelines
• Low VOC materials throughout

• Proper site and building lighting to avoid light pollution
• Incentives for mass transit and bicycle usage
