Welcome to One of the World's Greenest Buildings
The Brock Environmental Center, located at Pleasure House Point in Virginia Beach, Virginia, is an innovative example of environmentally sensitive and smart building—among the first in the nation to embrace energy and water independence—and advances CBF's efforts to defend one of the nation's most valuable and threatened natural resources, the Chesapeake Bay. The Center has achieved one of the toughest building standards in the world—a Living Building Challenge™ certification.

Elevated 14 feet above sea level, it is also a prototype for coping with climate change in a region increasingly prone to flooding.
