American Red Cross, Green Infrastructure Solution

Construction of green infrastructure solution at American Red Cross Cincinnati Region headquarters

Cardno assisted in the innovative design-build solution on this project. Our assistance helped reduce The American Red Cross Cincinnati Region headquarters’ stormwater and combined sewer overflow (CSO).

To help alleviate stormwater impacts, Cardno worked closely with the project architect and civil engineer to design an innovative green infrastructure solution that would perform more effectively than a hard infrastructure solution. 

Cardno’s solution contributed credits toward the headquarters. The solution allowed the facility to achieve LEED-Gold status and meet the local post-construction water quality, water quantity, and CSO reduction goals.  

Cardno’s team assisted the Red Cross headquarters in reducing its stormwater and combined sewer overflow with a green infrastructure solution, helping the facility earn a certified Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) gold status.
