You're most definitely not in Kansas anymore.

Designed sustainably--so that future generations can enjoy our natural splendor as much as you.
Santa Fe, New Mexico, is one of the great destination cities of the world. For visitors, meeting planners and adventurers alike, Santa Fe provides historic surroundings, enduring cultures, timeless beauty, and sophisticated food and hospitality, making it a perfect location for your next meeting, conference or convention.

Santa Fe is nestled in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, the southern most sub-range of the Rocky Mountains, at an altitude of just over 7,000 feet. The city occupies over 37 square miles in the upper Rio Grande valley just below mountains that reach above 12,000 feet. Thousands of acres of national forest and wilderness surround the city, and yet it is only an hour's drive to the Albuquerque International Airport.

Founded in 1610 and known as the "City Different," Santa Fe is the oldest state capital in the United States. The City's signature adobe architecture, tree-shaded Plaza, and winding streets make the city feel more like a foreign destination than one of America's most historic places. Its friendly people, laid back pace, temperate climate, and welcoming hospitality make this distinctive city one of the top destinations in the country.

How can you expect to come up with new ideas when surrounded by shades of gray?

LEED - "Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design"

Convention Center LEED Certification Information

"Environmentally responsible" is the term used to define a green building. Helping establish that responsibility is LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Certification which considers site sustainability, water efficiency, energy efficiency, content of materials and resources, indoor environmental quality and innovative design.

The Santa Fe Community Convention Center earned its LEED Gold Certification credits in a number of ways:
  • Eighty-eight percent of the materials were salvaged and recycled from the demolition of the city's old convention center.
  • Seventy-five percent, by weight, of the waste generated on the site during construction of the new convention center was recycled.
  • The new building was constructed on the same site as the former convention center.
  • The parking garage is underground at the new building and not developed in a different location.
  • The proximity of the Transit Center to the Civic Center promotes public transportation and bicycle racks were installed on the grounds of the new building to promote alternative methods of transportation.
  • A garden roof eliminates heat collection and provides natural insulation.
  • There are three 15,000 gallon water catchment tanks for landscaping irrigation set in the ground underneath the garage floor.
  • A sophisticated CO2 monitoring system installed in the garage monitors levels of CO2 and activates an exhaust system if safe levels are exceeded.
  • All of the exterior timber was reclaimed from the nearby Sierra Blanca forest fire.
  • All paints used on the project contain the lowest level of Volatile Organic Compounds available insuring better indoor air quality.
  • Exterior walkways are made from porous brick pavers to reduce water run-off.
  • There are three recycling areas located throughout the center.
  • There are skylights in the center's public spaces lowering electricity use.
  • Non-volatile carpet is used throughout the building.
  • All cleaning products are green.
