Red Stag Supper Club: A Green Design

The Red Stag Supper Club, located in hipster hub MInneapolis, Minnesota, will be the first restaurant to be LEED certified. LEED? What the heck is LEED, you ask?

Well, in a nutshell, the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System is a national rating of the "green" nature of a building. It bases its rating on sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection, and indoor environmental quality. LEED ratings can be applied to businesses as well as homes.

The Red Stag Supper Club is using existing materials as much as possible, including this marble (left), which they pulled out of the Marriot Hotel, as it is now being modeled. Amazingly, building materials like this often end up in landfills.

On the Red Stag Supper Club's website, they write that

Building a restaurant, pretty much building anything these days, is a wasteful endeavor. And restaurants themselves tend to produce too much waste and use lots of energy, resources, and water. With this project, we're trying to be mindful not only of the building process, using the LEED framework as a guide, but also of how much the restaurant will use in terms of resources on an ongoing basis. It's better for the environment and the workers doing the job than the usual way, and, it makes good business sense.
