The Brock Environmental Center Building Dashboard

Welcome to the Brock Environmental Center's Living Building Challenge Dashboard. This is a real-time gauge of the building's energy and water use and energy generation. With its super energy- and water-efficient features, including solar roof panels, wind turbines, geothermal wells, and rain cisterns, the Brock Center is intended to operate using no more electricity than what the sun and wind generate and no more water than what the rain provides.

Click on the icons at the bottom of the dashboard to view current and historical data about the Brock Center's operations and take a look at the "green features" that make this project possible.

To achieve Living Building Challenge certification from the International Living Future Institute, the center must operate a full year using "net zero" energy and "net zero" water, among other strict requirements.

In addition to energy and water use, the Brock Center also must meet strict criteria related to five other Living Building Challenge standards, called petals: place, health and happiness, materials, equity, and beauty. All require twelve continuous months of operating data to demonstrate the center meets the International Living Future Institute’s strict standards.

"We're attempting something few others have ever done, said CBF Hampton Roads Director Christy Everett. "We invite everyone to join us on the journey to see how we’re doing."

"When we envisioned the Brock Environmental Center, we intended to raise the bar and demonstrate the built environment can actually give back to the natural environment rather than harm it," Everett said. "We hope the Brock Center can be an international model for sustainability for years to come."
