The building is located within the ASF campus, and some of the pre-requisites and credits for LEED certification were implemented at campus level. The campus is in an area with pedestrian access to several services including banks, restaurants, pharmacy, hospital, church, and supermarkets, promoting sustainability in the community by reducing the need of a car. The campus is located within 800 meters from the Observatorio metro station, where line 1 runs, as well as within 400 meters from several bus stops on Observatorio Avenue. This represents an alternative for people working at ASF to reduce personal car use, also helping to reduce air pollution. Excluding a few parking spaces for people with disabilities, all parking is located underground. This contributes to reduce the heat island effect, a phenomenon that occurs in cities when solar radiation is absorbed in materials such as concrete, asphalt and dark-colored finishes on building roofs and paved areas. In addition, the Jenkins Foundation Wellness Center building has a vegetated roof which helps to further reduce the heat island effect. 20 exclusive parking spaces for low-emitting and fuel-efficient vehicles are provided. The location of these parking spaces is preferential; they are the closest to the parking exit leading to the Jenkins Foundation Wellness Center and the rest of the campus’ buildings. The entire campus has a waste management system which allows for the reuse and recycling of paper, PET, cans, cardboard, newspaper, and tetra pack.
