Broad makes a strong case that their buildings are green, with six inches of exterior insulation, triple glazing, and full heat recovery ventilation systems. Plumbing systems are separated, using gray water for irrigation and black water, from toilets and kitchens, and a biogas generator will run the building's air conditioning systems. (Broad is the world's largest manufacturer of absorption air conditioners and chillers, that can run off gas or solar power)

They claim that the building will save the equivalent of 60,000 tons of oil per year, 600,000 tons of construction materials and achieve 50 times the residential density of normal construction.
