LEED “Dual Platinum” certification on historic renovation

By renovating a historic building into a record-setting green HQ, The Christman Co. earned $13 million in tax credits. But that’s almost penny change compared to the $300 million in new business and 50% better margins attributable to its new home.

Automated parking can open up possibilities to achieve similar results in projects where the renovated building would demand increased parking space.  And, provides significant LEED points through reduced energy use and pollution.
