St. Croix Falls (Wis.) Public Library
Sustainable Construction: The adaptation of a vacant grocery store for use as the St. Croix Falls Public Library installed an in-floor radiant heating system and a high-efficiency heating and cooling system incorporated into a solar array. A lighting control system dims lights automatically during daylight hours, while countertops, textiles, and carpets are manufactured from materials made of recycled plastic bottles and denim.
