The LEED Platinum Greensburg City Hall, designed by Kansas City-based BNIM Architects, was completed in October.
This split-geodesic-dome dwelling is one of more than 100 homes rebuilt by residents to be super energy efficient.
The second commercial building in the city to reopen, Greensburg State Bank boasts a variety of sustainable features including ICF construction, high-efficiency heating and cooling systems, solar orientation, and a highly insulated roof.
The east and west sides of this “earth berm” dwelling are 75% buried in dirt, to help regulate indoor temperatures and save on energy bills.
This traditional-looking home, built with insulated concrete forms (ICFs), boasts a HERS rating of 53.
A new school, designed to achieve LEED for Schools Platinum, will support Greensburg’s vision to be a model eco-community.
A new county hospital is set to open early next year; planners are hopeful it will be the first LEED Platinum critical access hospital in the nation.
