ICC Moving To LEED Building
December 18, 2006

The International Code Council (ICC) will move its world headquarters to the heart of Washington, D.C., and into a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certified building in the nation’s Capitol.

The move will elevate the Code Council’s profile, according to Code Council CEO Rick Weiland. It also will enhance relationships with the Federal government, and national and international organizations that have a presence in D.C., including the National Association of Realtors (NAR), the building owner.

The NAR building is one of Washington’s greenest office buildings, having achieved a silver rating using the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED green building rating system. Among its green features are energy efficiency, rainwater collection, high-efficiency HVAC and lighting systems, water-efficient fixtures and waterless urinals, excellent day-lighting and views, and use of recycled content materials.

Michele Vernon of VOA Associates, Inc., a Chicago-based design firm with an office in D.C., led the team that designed the build-out of the new space.
