Mashpee Public Library

Mashpee, Massachusetts

The new Mashpee Public Library replaces the existing library on a site in Mashpee Commons. This project has received LEED Silver certification. The building’s green features include a chilled beam mechanical system, an extensive roof top 20 KWH Photovoltaic system, low water consumption plantings, and an on-site storm water management system, including a bioswale garden to filter stormwater runoff. An interactive web-based weather station in the lobby allowing realtime interactive display of the energy savings and production elements helps to educate the public on sustainable features within the building.
