McDonald’s at Abercorn Common

What shows that green building is going mainstream? How about the first McDonald’s in the world to occupy a LEED Core and Shell certified building. This restaurant combines a traditional McDonald’s kitchen layout with a high performance, healthy building design.

Water use inside the building is reduced 50% through the incorporation of pressure-assisted toilets, waterless urinals, and low flow faucets. High-efficiency lighting and HVAC allow for 20% more energy efficiency. Clearstory windows and glazing give daylight and views for the entire restaurant as well as a unique design aesthetic. The site design handles onsite runoff through porous pavement. The landscape requires no potable water for irrigation, and preferred parking is available for low-emitting and hybrid vehicles.
