Green Features at Sibley
Sibley Memorial Hospital is committed to taking care of the planet as we care for our patients. Building features that reduce energy use, cut waste and employ environmentally friendly materials have earned Sibley recognition as one of the 50 greenest hospitals in the nation. Both Building B and Sibley's Radiation Oncology Center are LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) Gold certified. Some of Sibley's green features include:
Environmentally Friendly Construction
- Sibley has one of the largest gabion walls (a wall built out of stones and wire baskets instead of the customary concrete) in the metro D.C. area, saving over 200 yards of concrete.
- As part of the construction, existing large trees were relocated and dozens of new trees were planted.
- Sibley has two of the largest vegetative roofs of any healthcare facility in Washington, D.C., a total of 50,000 square feet between multiple buildings.
- Vegetative construction prevents about 310,000 gallons of water from entering the stormwater system every year.
- 4 beehives housed on one of Sibley’s green roofs aid local pollination.
Sustainable Gardens and Stormwater Retention
- 5 large rain/retention ponds cover over an acre to retain stormwater run-off of Sibley’s surface parking lots.
- Vegetable, fruit and herb gardens are sustained by runoff water from retention ponds.
- Cisterns with 40,000-gallon capacity harvest runoff rainwater, which would otherwise end up in the city sewer system, to water lawns and plants.
