  • Chicago, IL (1888PressRelease) March 19, 2010 - For those who are curious about what a L.E.E.D. (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) building looks like, the Naperville Park District now offers a free video tour of the South Maintenance Facility via a link on their website.

    The South Maintenance Facility, located at 3415 Book Road in Naperville, IL, is the operations center for Park District employees in the South Parks Division as they maintain the District's largest parks, including Frontier Sports Complex, Commissioners Park, DuPage River Sports Complex, and Knoch Knolls Park.

    The facility, which received Silver L.E.E.D. certification, was the first public building in Naperville to be L.E.E.D.-certified.

    Energy-efficient and sustainable features of the building include a reflective roof, a highly efficient H-VAC system, day lighting, extra thick building insulation, window shading, natural ventilation, drought-tolerant landscaping, and recycled building materials.

    In addition to the video tour, the Park District invites interested residents, students, and any other interested individuals, to visit the building to view the features, read the interpretive signs, and ask questions. The facility provides a good learning opportunity for students regarding "green" construction.

    Produced by NCTV under the direction of Executive Director Liz Spencer, the video tells the story of the building with a full range of indoor and outdoor images and through interviews with key community influencers who helped shape the project.
