EarthRight-certified dental office
August 3, 2009
EDEN PRAIRIE, MN — A two-year, $1 million renovation project of a dental office that focused on making the building more environmentally friendly is now complete, according to the Eden Prairie News.
Bruce Hultgren, D.D.S, said: "With the changes that we made, we’ve been certified by an organization called EarthRight."
The building includes a green roof, energy efficient lighting, a low-maintenance heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system and landscaping that requires minimal watering, the story stated.
The green roof feature of the building is expected to pay for itself within five years because of the energy savings it will promote, the story noted.
Patients are able to see the hard work Family Dentistry did in planning and implementing the green roof with a view of the sedum-covered roof from the dental chair, the story added.
