SHIFT TOWARD SUSTAINABILITY WITH PARADIGM

Paradigm’s sustainable, high-efficiency features have been designed with the goal of simultaneously reducing the environmental footprint of the community, as well as your monthly living costs. From a state-of-the-art “white” roof to energy-saving peripherals, to locally sourced building materials, sustainability is at the forefront of Paradigm’s construction.

Paradigm’s LEED® accredited consultant has provided guidance for enhancing environmental goals and managing the certification process throughout Paradigm’s construction including:
  • Paradigm’s Construction Waste Management Plan minimized waste sent to landfills and redirected recyclable resources back to the manufacturing process.
  • Building materials used in the construction of Paradigm were regionally sourced and selected to reduce the environmental impacts of transportation.
  • Many of Paradigm’s building materials were also recyclable and were selected to reduce the environmental impacts of extracting and processing virgin materials.
  • Mechanical equipment uses environmentally friendly refrigerants that are free of CFC’s and have low ozone depletion and global warming potential.
  • All adhesives and sealants, paints and coatings, and flooring systems at Paradigm were made with low-emitting materials, reducing the quantity of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) and other harmful indoor air contaminants.

WATER EFFICIENCY

Paradigm’s exquisitely landscaped terraces will require substantially less municipally supplied potable water. Incorporating native and drought tolerant plant species and high-efficiency irrigation equipment, the outdoor spaces at Paradigm are “green” in more ways than one.

ENERGY AND ATMOSPHERE

All suites and common areas will feature energy-efficient lighting and have been equipped with energy recovery ventilators (ERV) with overall energy recovery effectiveness of 80%.
