Rolling Knolls


The LEED Platinum-certified Rolling Knolls Pavilion was designed using maximal sustainable design standards. A portion of the original clubhouse was incorporated in the design, reducing the need for new materials as well as connecting the new building to the site’s history in the community.

Through a combination of strategies below, the building uses 50% less energy than a comparable building. When considering the renewable energy systems, this facility will ultimately use 70% less energy than a comparable building.

Additionally, construction material was sustainably sourced in a number of different ways. Materials were selected for their durability, recycled content, proximity to the site, and their ability to be sustainably salvaged for future use.
