Lawler Sustainability carried out a LEED Assessment on Applegreen Service Station at Mountgorry in Swords, Dublin.
Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) is an internationally recognised green building certification system, providing third-party verification that a building was designed and built using strategies intended to improve performance in areas such as energy savings, water efficiency, CO2 emissions reduction, and improved indoor environmental quality.
This is a one storey, 648 square metre building, with an average of 2200 average daily users.
LEED Silver Certification
The building achieved a Silver Certificate as awarded by the U.S Green Building Council (USGBC).
This was made possible by the use of many green and eco-friendly technologies such as air to water heat pumps (high and low temperature), rainwater harvesting, and grey water recycling from the onsite car wash.
