Brigham & Women’s Health Center at Mt. Pleasant Home
Brigham & Women’s Health Care Center, a primary-care practice, occupies the newly built four-story addition. This clinic serves not only residents of the home but patients in the neighborhood, as well. Hospital officials anticipated that as many as 14,000 new patients were served by the clinic in 2014.
Dellbrook incorporated a number of innovative green solutions into the plans for Mount Pleasant Home. Hot water is heated by solar panels on the roof, reducing energy costs. Skylights illuminate stairwells and common areas, reducing lighting costs. Storm water run-off is captured and used to irrigate the home’s woodland gardens. Dellbrook completed the project in December, 2011.
Thanks to the sustainable design features and the new energy-efficient systems, Mount Pleasant Home has qualified for Gold Leadership in Energy and Environment Design (LEED) certification from the U.S. Green Building Council.
