Sustainable design principles have been developed to guide the design and construction of Evelyn with the use of energy efficient appliances, storm water management principles and the preservation of green spaces.

The buildings have been designed to reduce total energy and water consumption and equipment and appliances selected for energy efficiency. Energy efficient external lighting systems have been selected for all public realms. Pedestrian walkways and proximity and access to transit will help reduce transportation energy usage.

Whenever possible local, recycled and remanufactured materials will be selected and utilized, reducing the use of new products as practical. Recycling systems are incorporated into the design of the community, reducing the amount of waste generated and moved off site.

The community has been planned carefully, utilizing the most sophisticated CPTED or Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design Principles. Pedestrian pathways, vibrant open spaces offer integration for the community and provides significant “eye on the street” security.
