The following is a list of areas where the architects and builders have taken environmental (green) issues into consideration in constructing our new building:
 1.    Steel beams are made of recycled metals
 2.    Carpet of recycled materials

        has natural insulating properties
 4.    Low VOC paint – does not emit noxious fumes

        provides more frequent air exchanges and better quality of air

12.   Durable, stainless steel cabinetry, which has a longer life than wood cabinets and are
        easier to sanitize
