Conservation building “LEEDs” by example

F.W. KENT PARK– “If we can’t live by example, then we’re not fulfilling our mission,” said Johnson County Conservation Director Harry Graves, as he showcased his department’s new headquarters building at Kent Park.
The almost 13,000 sq. ft. building houses conservation staff offices and shop facilities in what Graves describes as “about the greenest county building.” Going green wasn’t negotiable, as far as Graves was concerned.
“It’s the right thing to do.”
The Conservation Board decided they wanted to “do everything we could to make it green.”
