Clark Nexsen Project Receives LEED Certification

December 12, 2005

Clark Nexsen, is pleased to announce that the Personnel Support Facility, Naval Amphibious Base, Little Creek, has officially received the Silver level of Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Certification. This certification was received from the US Green Building Council (USGBC), a coalition of building industry leaders working to promote environmentally safe places to live and work.

The LEED system is a voluntary, consensus-based national standard for developing high-performance sustainable buildings. It provides a complete framework for assessing building performance and meeting sustainability goals in categories including sustainable sites, water efficiency, energy and atmosphere, materials and resources, indoor environmental quality, and innovation and design. A nationally recognized system of standards determines the level of LEED certification that is appropriate for a project. Silver Certification is awarded to projects that achieve at least 33 of 70 available credits.
