One Grove Street achieved LEED certification for implementing practical and measurable strategies and solutions aimed at achieving high performance in sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection and indoor environmental quality.
LEED is the foremost program for the design, construction and operation of green buildings. More than 82,800 commercial and institutional projects are currently participating in LEED, comprising more than 15.7 billion commercial square feet of construction space in all 50 states and more than 162 countries and territories.
"Achieving LEED certification is more than implementing sustainable practices. It represents a commitment to making the world a better place and it influences others to do better," said Mahesh Ramanujam, president and CEO, USGBC. "Given the extraordinary importance of climate protection and the central role of the building industry in that effort, Burton Construction demonstrates their leadership through their LEED certification."
Several of Burton Construction's projects have received LEED accreditation. Det Norske Veritas, a 96,000 square foot, Class A office building, was Gold certified for its core, shell and tenant interiors. Oak Park Plaza, a 60,000 square foot office building in the Westchase District received Silver certification, and the 25,000 square foot Altus Baytown Diagnostic Center also received Gold certification for its core, shell and tenant interiors.
