PROJECT CHARACTERISTICS
C&K Architects | Interiors, Inc. designed a new LEED registered Community Center to meet the ever-growing needs of the City and the community. C&K evaluated other municipal community center/recreation program philosophies, trends and technologies in addition to the overall master plan being developed for Highlander Park to create the most cost-effective and sustainable solution. The center will function as a community gathering place for cultural events, art shows, education, meetings, and recreational activities.

Key environmental and cost savings realized through this design effort included optimizing energy performance with glass, insulation and sun control for an annual savings of at least $35,000 per year, reducing water usage by over 20%, achieving zero light pollution, complete remediation of this former brownfield site, recycling over 70% of the construction waste, and utilizing recycled building materials.
