Summer Star Wildlife Sanctuary in Boylston, MA is home to the sustainably – designed Trailhead House and walking trails that traverse the site’s 45-acre, protected, forested terrain that adjoins other conservation land. Completed in September 2014, Outback Engineering was responsible for surveying and site design, and worked closely with the client and project team to implement many low-impact, sustainable techniques, such that the project received LEED Gold Certification. The septic system uses composting toilets and a drip dispersal leaching system; drainage design uses rain gardens, permeable pavement and other groundwater recharge techniques; rainwater from the roof is harvested for re-use in underground fire protection and irrigation tanks; and the building has an Earth Roof and solar panels among other energy-efficient innovations.
The Trailhead House is now open and provides nature educational programs for school children and others.
