Pennovation Earns LEED Gold Certification
Pennovation Center was recently awarded LEED Gold Certification. The project resuscitated an urban industrial campus into a 21st century think tank. The stormwater design incorporates a multi stage treatment approach. The design channels stormwater from roads and parking areas into rain gardens filled with native plants for infiltration. During major storm events, rain garden overflows are diverted to a large detention facility, treating all stormwater prior to releasing to the Schuykill River. The project has also converted 3.5 acres of lawn into native meadow creating much needed habitat for urban flora and fauna.
