CITY OF MIAMI’S GIBSON PARK WINS LEED AWARD FOR ENERGY EFFICIENT DESIGN

The City of Miami has been promoting energy conservation for years, and finally got the recognition that they deserve in a great new project at Gibson Park. The project has been selected as the Most Outstanding LEED Public New Construction (NC) Project in South Florida.

LEED, or Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design, is a well established international green building certification program that recognizes best-in-class building strategies and practices. To receive LEED certification, building projects satisfy prerequisites and earn points to achieve different levels of certification (Certified, Silver, Gold, or Platinum).

The project includes a wide variety of amenities for all the family. Structures include an athletic field, stadium, recreational building, Health Beat Vita Course fitness course and two Myrtha  stainless steel pools: a 34×22.90×0.90-1.50m lap pool with learn-to-swim area and a free form tot pool, variable depth 0.00-0.20m, which surface is 97sm.

Myrtha Pools added an important contribution to the achievement of the “Gold” certification: in fact specialized studies prove that build a 50x25m Myrtha pool can save approximately 45% of the greenhouse gas (CO2) when compared to traditional concrete construction and more than 30% when compared to a welded steel pool.
