PCC's Austin Family Health Center is a LEED-Gold, 18,000+ square foot community health center on Chicago's west side. The ground floor houses a Federally Qualified Community Health Center while the 2nd floor contains community meeting rooms, dental suite, behavioral health services as well as administrative offices.

An extensive green roof system was installed on the building to reduce thermal loads and help mitigate storm water runoff. Pictures and more information on this system can be found here. Storm water runoff from the roof is then routed to a constructed wetland in the center of the parking lot along with ronoff from the parking.
