Friends Committee on National Legislation (FCNL): Renovated Capitol Hill Building
The newly-renovated, "green" headquarters of the Friends Committee on National Legislation (FCNL) has cut the group's energy consumption by 48 percent. A model for energy conservation, the building is expected to receive a silver LEED certification from the U.S. Green Building Council. Green building design elements include, among other things, a geothermal heating and cooling system, a vegetated roof, eco-friendly office furniture, natural lighting enhancements, bamboo floors, and user-controlled environmental features. Click on any of the dots shown on the picture of the building at this web site to learn more about that particular green design feature (virtual tour). This site also includes several links to further information, a live camera feed showing the building's green roof, a detailed log and photos of the building's construction, and information on the connection between the Quaker philosophy and the concept of green building.
