Jeff Markey, assistant vice president of engineering and construction for Hy-Vee, said the Madison store site was selected based on its proximity to public transportation and residential neighborhoods, as well as the potential to incorporate portions of the existing building and parking lot.
“The store was designed to maximize reuse of the existing structure,” he said. “This was an abandoned retail site that we were able to put back into service for the community.”
Other green features of the project that helped it earn LEED Gold certification include:
- Recycled or locally sourced materials used in the construction of the building and parking lot, with more than 90 percent of construction waste diverted from landfills.
- Low-flow, motion-activated toilets and hand sinks, which reduce potable water use by 40 percent.
- Water-quality equipment installed on site, which removed pollutants from rainwater before it enters the public sewer system.
