Potomac Watershed Study Center
The Moss Building is targeting LEED Platinum, Net Zero Energy and Living Building Challenge Petal certification. The approximately 6,500 sq. ft. project includes one floor of bunkhouse-style dormitories, a kitchen and multi-purpose event space, a classroom, staff room, and supporting spaces. The building will be heated and cooled by a closed loop geothermal system. Composting toilets will be used in the building, and grey water will be biologically treated on-site. Energy will be extracted from compost exhaust through an innovative heat recovery system.
