The new building will comply with LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Gold Certification standards.

Developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), LEED provides building owners and operators a concise framework for identifying and implementing practical and measurable green building design, construction, operations and maintenance solutions. The LEED certification system requires third-party verification that a building or community was designed and built using strategies aimed at improving performance across a variety of metrics.

The LEED Gold Certification is based off of five building performance standards, including:

  • Sustainable site developments
  • Water savings
  • Energy efficiency
  • Materials selection
  • Indoor environmental quality
