The windows of the facility allow sufficient natural light and also reduce heat loss by providing natural ventilation.

The facility also incorporates a storm water management system which uses rain gardens to essentially eliminate runoff.

The landscaping around the building has also been praised for providing a pedestrian-friendly setting, including an indoor storage and cleaning area for bicycles and limited car parking spaces.
