The Arches at Deer Park Achieves LEED Silver Certification

Date Posted:

Aurora is proud to announce that the Tanger Outlets at the Arches in Deer Park, New York has been certified as a “LEED Silver” project by the USGBC.

The Arches at Deer Park is the first LEED project to be built in the Town of Babylon and is the largest ‘green’ project on Long Island.

Aurora Contractors has several LEED GA’s and AP’s on staff and we are very proud of all involved with this accomplishment.

Some of the techniques used to obtain LEED Silver:

• During the demolition phase, the debris was sorted and the concrete was reused as RCA on the site;
• A railroad spur was added in order to remove the demolition debris and cut down on local traffic;
• The use of recycled material, use of certified wood, use of regional materials, use of low emitting materials;
• The redevelopment of Brownfield land;
• Alternate public transportation was provided;
• Storm water management;
• Water use reduction of up to 30%;
• Implementation of an indoor air quality management plan;
• Automated Lighting; and
• Public education signage.

We look forward to continue building ‘green’ and working with the USGBC.
