New Aiea Public Library Awarded Prestigious LEED Gold Certification

New Aiea Public Library Awarded Prestigious LEED Gold Certification

The new Aiea Public Library has earned the coveted Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold Certification from the U. S. Green Building Council (USGBC).  The cooperative efforts of the Hawaii State Public Library System (HSPLS) and the Department of Accounting and General Services (DAGS) contributed to the Aiea Public Library being selected as a LEED Gold building.

Aiea Public Library is a $10.4 million, 17,200-square-foot library located on the site of the former Aiea Sugar Mill at 99-374 Pohai Place.  Designed by architect Glenn Miura of CDS International, the Library includes features to reduce electricity consumption, such as a high-efficiency air-conditioning system and 6,000 square feet of photovoltaic solar panels.  The Library is reminiscent of the old sugar mill with simple, tall gabled roofs, and exposed structures, mechanical and air-conditioning duct work within the interior space.
