A Green Frontier Project

Share this on:

Construction is set to begin on a new 14,000 foot green, multi-use, demonstration building in Rancho Cucamonga in the Inland Empire region of Southern California. It will be built entirely to high performance green building standards, utilizing the latest in energy-efficient, water-conserving, and environmentally-friendly materials and technologies.

Dubbed The Frontier Project, the center will be seeking LEED platinum certification by the U.S. Green Building Council and will serve as an ideal educational resource for anyone interested in building sustainably. A public meeting and conference area, a demonstration garden, and an Energy Star-qualified kitchen will be incorporated. Tours and workshops will be offered to building professionals and the public. A display gallery will feature 30-minute films highlighting the construction.

Recycled and locally-sourced materials will be used throughout the building. Rainwater will be collected and re-used for landscaping purposes. Most of the construction waste that will be generated will be recycled or re-used.

The Frontier project is being developed by The Frontier Project Foundation and the Cucamonga Valley Water District. Construction is expected to begin in April and be completed by the end of next summer.
