LEED Tour: Maryland Heights Community Center

A Dynamic Spot for Sport, Wellness & Engagement

Our Annual Green Building Tour will feature the LEED Silver Maryland Heights Community Center where the building’s striking exterior was inspired by the importance of access to natural light for human health and wellness. 

During the event, the project team will discuss the highly interactive feasibility study that served as the basis for sustainable design to meet the needs of current and future citizens and then give a facility tour that highlights the special attention to noise reduction from nearby I-270 traffic; the surrounding park that was designed to perform double duty serving as alfresco spaces for events like craft fairs, and the effort to retain as much outdoor space as possible.

Flance Learning Center opened to students in June 2014, and aims to be an exemplary early
learning center, serving children of all incomes and backgrounds, six-weeks to six-years of age in a new, $11.5 million facility. The center’s design team placed heavy emphasis on ensuring that indoor and outdoor spaces were resource-efficient, free of toxins, healthy for students, comfortable for teachers, and cost-effective.  In recognition of this emphasis on health and environmental
sustainability, Flance Center is registered to become only the 4th LEED for Schools Certified
Preschool in the world.   Universal Design features are also incorporated to create a convenient
experience for staff and students, regardless of physical ability, thereby creating an environment in which special-needs and typical-needs children can thrive side-by-side in the same classrooms.
