Green buildings hit milestone

Post Time:Mar 30,2012Classify:Industry NewsView:421


The U.S. Green Building Council on Tuesday announced that it has given its LEED certification to the 12,000th commercial project.


“Twelve years after the first 12 projects earned LEED certification, the green building community has reached a significant milestone,” said Rick Fedrizzi, president, CEO & founding chairman of the council. “The momentum for green buildings is rippling around the globe, enhancing the built environment for generations to come.”


The 12,000th project is the LEED Gold Anahuac National Wildlife Refuge in Texas. Paid for by the stimulus, the building was rebuilt after the original facility was destroyed by Hurricane Ike in 2008. The facility will house new wildlife exhibits, an environmental education center, and National Parks employees.
