Avalon Business Center gets LEED Silver Certification

The Avalon Business Center was awarded LEED Silver certification as a multiple buildings project. Highlights include doubling the number of skylights from the original design, employing very high efficient plumbing fixtures to reduce water consumption, and selecting non-toxic interior finishes to enhance the indoor air quality and overall work environment. A major challenge faced was working with a project team that was very inexperienced with LEED – neither owner, architect, MEP consultants or general had ever worked on a LEED project before.
