WHITE PLAINS, N.Y., and WARWICK, R.I., (PRWEB) October 22, 2014
Seavest Healthcare Properties LLC announced that the Kent Ambulatory Services Pavilion in Warwick, about 15 miles south of Providence, R.I., has achieved Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design® (LEED) Gold certification.
LEED, a building rating system developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), evaluates six different areas of environmental and energy significance: sustainable sites; water efficiency; energy and atmosphere; materials and resources; indoor environmental quality; and innovation in design. The 62,724 square foot facility, owned by White Plains-based Seavest Healthcare Properties’ Fund III, was evaluated using the LEED for Core & Shell system.
“The LEED Gold certification is one more achievement to add to the list for the Kent Ambulatory Services Pavilion,” says Jonathan L. Winer, Senior Managing Director and CIO of Seavest. “Not only is it a benefit to the community from a healthcare standpoint, now we can all take pride in the fact that it has succeeded in achieving important environmental and efficiency standards as well. This was a shared vision of the hospital and Seavest from day one of the project and we are happy to reach this milestone.”
Among the features that contributed to the facility’s 61-point LEED Gold rating was the use of recycled materials from local sources, energy-efficient lighting, low-usage water systems for landscaping, a heat-reflecting white roofing surface and computerized air handling-enhanced HVAC systems.
The Pavilion houses Kent’s ambulatory services activities including an advanced surgery center occupying the second floor. The first floor will be based on an integrated medical neighborhood design providing a broad range of healthcare services in an attractive, efficient setting.
