Sustainable Design

SBA Airline Terminal Site Plan
SBA Airline Terminal Site Plan
The use of "green building" techniques and other energy-efficient and environmentally friendly elements of design is one of seven key policies/goals set for the Airline Terminal Project by the Santa Barbara City Council on May 15, 2005. These goals guided our planning and implementation process.

How We Are Meeting This Goal

SBA will incorporate general goals of Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) to the greatest extent feasible given project budget and other constraints. We are looking at features such as:

  • Water efficient landscaping
  • Innovative wastewater technologies
  • Water conserving fixtures that maximize water efficiency within the buildings
  • Alternative transportation such as an additional bus line, secure bicycle racks, and preferred parking for carpools, vanpools and a percentage of fuel efficient vehicles
  • A high ratio of open space to the development footprint to promote biodiversity
  • Energy efficient buildings
  • Photovoltaic systems and other strategies to increase levels of on-site renewable energy
  • Building products that incorporate recycled content materials
  • Wood based materials that are certified as coming from sustainably-managed forests
  • Introduction of daylight and views through a combination of skylights and high windows
  • Ventilation systems that enhance air quality performance
