SITES (The Sustainable Sites Initiative™)
Stone Brewing Co. World Bistro & Gardens in Escondido, CA, achieved SITES certification, one of only 30 projects worldwide to meet the high standards set by this new LEED-like certification system for projects with or without a building. The majority of the gardens at Stone Brewing are located within a detention basin that captures and treats the stormwater generated by the surrounding commercial park. This basin provides water quality improvements for the runoff through bioremediation and phytoremediation while serving as a beautiful site amenity and gathering space during the dry season. The entire site utilizes a series of interconnected low-impact-development features, high-efficiency irrigation, edible landscapes, reclaimed construction materials, and organic composting to create a truly sustainable setting that has become an international destination for craft beer aficionados.VIEW PROJECT
“The landscaping is the finest I have seen on a county project. The area was completely restored and helps to carry out the center’s educational mission. I am particularly impressed with the green roof planted with native species. Green buildings and water-saving natural habitat are environmentally-friendly. I have always felt that if you don’t build it right today, you take just that little bit away from tomorrow.”
