Construction Updates Fluor's Commitment to Sustainability December 19, 2023

The Boone County Economic Development Corporation hosted conversations for the Fluor team and Boone County city and town leaders in the fall. Many of the topics discussed align with the Lilly Lebanon Project team’s commitment to sustainability.

Following are just a few of the dozens of activities that the team is working on in order to achieve its sustainability goals.

Construction activity pollution prevention

During construction, Fluor teams are working to reduce pollution from construction activities by controlling soil erosion, waterway sedimentation and airborne dust. A lot of re-grading takes place in the early phases of construction, thus dust suppression has been a priority along with keeping the roads clean.

Water efficiency

The Lebanon Utilities Water Department will supply LP1 and LP2. The 10 buildings on the LP1 campus will have WaterSense-labeled products, which are certified to use at least 20% less water, save energy and perform as well as or better than regular models. Building-level water metering will support water management and identify opportunities for additional savings.

Energy use

Plans for the campus include a 20+ acre solar energy field, which will allow the site to offset energy consumption from grid supply to renewable energy sources. Solar energy also helps meet LEED requirements.

High efficiency equipment and LED lighting, along with building-level energy metering, means improved energy performance and tracking opportunities for added energy savings. No chlorofluorocarbon-based refrigerants will be used in heating, ventilating, air- conditioning, and refrigeration systems.
