U.S. Coast Guard Headquarters Earns LEED Gold Certification
WASHINGTON, D.C. – The U.S. Coast Guard Headquarters has received a LEED® Gold certification by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC).
During construction, the General Services Administration increased its green building requirements for all newly constructed federal buildings from LEED Silver to LEED Gold. Despite the change, the team secured the Gold Certification.
Clark Project Executive David Pastrick stated, "Clark worked alongside the design team to develop a clear roadmap, ensuring the headquarters earned LEED Gold certification. Through our concerted efforts, the design-build team devised solutions which ultimately earned the project USGBC's second highest certification."
In addition, twenty percent of the construction materials were salvaged, harvested, extracted, mined, or manufactured within 500 miles of the job site, helping to further reduce the project’s carbon footprint.
