USGBC Florida Presents: JEA Headquarters LEED Tour, August 18, 8 - 10am EDT,  Jacksonville
Event Description

The JEA Headquarters project represents a great achievement in sustainability and resiliency for Duval County. Located in Jacksonville's Urban Core, the JEA Headquarters is a seven-story, Class A office building with an 8-story parking garage that features 30 electric charging stations. The building contains a mix of enclosed offices and open office areas, visitor lobby, customer center, future coffee shop area, and collaborative spaces, and substantial emergency power capabilities. The existing JEA district cooling water plant distributes chilled water to the building.

The facility has earned LEED v4 Core and Shell Gold, along with being designed to meet WELL building standards in energy efficiency, and achieved the EPA's "Designed to Earn the ENERGY STAR" certification.

The headquarters boasts accomplishments in sustainability, such as 28% reduction in energy use, 50% reduction in water use, and 86% of construction waste was diverted from landfill. Being a critical facility, the JEA Headquarters takes its place in the downtown skyline as being one of the first designed with resiliency in mind- including redundancies and back up systems.

The tour will be guided by project team members, and will highlight the different components of LEED that have been accomplished.
