Bathing facilities are provided for runners and cyclists who work on-site and run or bicycle to work. These facilities are located on the second floor of the north and south wings, each having both men and women’s facilities with storage lockers.
There are 6 bicycle stations located in various locations throughout the development.
All irrigation at The Gateway Village use reclaimed water. Also unique to LEED-certified buildings is that all toilets will operate with this water that is supplied by the city of Murfreesboro, thus saving our potable water resources.
Unique to this area of the country, but been in place for years in larger cities are permeable pavers. This system allows rainwater to filter into a greening system using aggregate stone which cleans impurities from the water. Also, Middle Tennessee State University has adopted this development to use as a project for students to study the data collected so that the city may implement on future projects. www.paversystems.com
