GAINESVILLE, Ga., Nov. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Mansfield Energy Corp. has received LEED Silver certification from the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) for the installation of solar power during a recent expansion at their corporate headquarters in Gainesville, GA. Mansfield's corporate headquarters is the first building in Hall County, GA to receive LEED certification at any level.
"Mansfield's trade floor represents the latest generation of computing and productivity technology and we wanted our power supply to be just as progressive, and the payback and ROI made good sense," said J. Alexander, President of Mansfield Energy.
The expansion project was led by Carroll Daniel Construction, a leading commercial construction services firm, and features three-hundred-twenty-four, 305 watt multi-crystalline silicon solar modules powering 10,000 square feet of floor space. By employing a 100kw array of solar panels installed on the roof of Mansfield's Gainesville office, energy cost is reduced. Additional building modifications were also made to reduce overall energy consumption for the company which included enhanced heating and air systems to improve indoor air quality and efficient electrical and plumbing fixtures.
Michael F. Mansfield, CEO of Mansfield Energy Corp. said, "Mansfield is honored to be the first business in Hall County to receive LEED certification from the USGBC. As we look forward into the future, Mansfield remains focused on constant innovation and improvements that benefit not only our organization but the energy industry at large."
The Mansfield Energy Build-Out Project has been named a first place award recipient in two divisions of the Associated General Contractors' 2012 Build Georgia Awards Program. The project was awarded first place honors in the Best Sustainable Building Practices category for design/build renovation projects.
