The new 79,000 square feet green office building has been designed as a 'one-stop' complex that meets the needs of the public. The complex is Escambia County's first Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certified building and was awarded Gold Level certification. With one of the largest green roof systems in the State of Florida, the facility is being counted among one of the most eco-friendly structures in the entire county. During excessive rains, the roof acts as a filter for stormwater runoff. The green roof also act as insulation and keeps the building cool. The 'green' elements incorporated in the facility include pervious concrete paving, energy-efficient construction, and natural light. It is estimated that the building will use 22% less energy and 38% less water than current building codes allow.
