The Kids R Kids LEED certified building is part of the Newland Communities FishHawk Development. The facility is a 12,500 s.f. building that serves as a learning academy for children ages 6 weeks to 12 years of age. Kids R Kids learning academies are located in 15 states throughout the United States; this is their first facility to achieve a LEED certification.
Kids R Kids and Newland Communities are leading the way and caring about the exposure children have to indoor environments at a young age. Many children suffer from allergies and other air borne ailments, being able to reduce those ailments is just one step accomplished with this Kids R Kids LEED project. While all categories of the LEED designation are important the Indoor Environmental Quality is important to the quality of work life for the staff as well as the children. Research has been done over the past several decades regarding the negative impacts of poor indoor air quality on occupant health and productivity. Considering the amount of time Americans typically spend indoors, taking steps to ensure a healthy indoor environment is imperative. Most indoor environmental quality problems are preventable through thoughtful design and construction practices seen in this Kids R Kids project.
The LEED plaque presentation will be presented by Drew Smith of Two Trails to Keith Balot and Ben Fernandes of Kids R Kids. Please join us for a light breakfast following the award presentation.
