Our Facility

Going Green

AFC is the first free clinic in the nation to receive the prestigious LEED-CI* Gold certification. By working closely with design and engineering teams that donated significant amounts of time and labor, AFC was able to achieve a nationally recognized “green” space that is healthy, comfortable and cost effective. The Clinic not only provides a healthy environment for patients, volunteers and staff, but the energy efficient space is also reducing costs associated with operating the facility. This allows us to direct more donated funds to patient care. AFC’s new space has garnered multiple design awards including:

  • Washington Business Journal award for Green Building Design
  • The Health Care Facilities Symposium Award
  • Washington Metro Chapter of the American Society of Interior Designers award for a health care clinic
  • International Interior Design Association/Mid-Atlantic Chapter Silver Award for Healthcare Design and Special Merit for Sustainability
  • Washington Chapter of the American Institute of Architects Presidential Citation for Sustainable Design
