Inland Kenworth’s concrete tilt-up building was designed using a green strategy, incorporating environmentally sustainable elements both inside and outside. The facility itself boasts a high-intensity lighting system which saves energy by automatically adjusting to ambient outdoor lighting conditions, while the site employs an innovative rainwater management system which sees parking lot run-off stored in large settling ponds. Another feature of the system has rainwater and snowmelt from the roof carried via a sluice box to the streambed below and into the Northfield Road drainage system, which outlets into a natural wetland.
The Inland Kenworth project was featured in WaterBucket’s Showcasing Green Infrastructure Innovation on Vancouver Island Series 2007.
