Making sure that the new Research Support Facilities (RSF) will achieve Platinum level certification from the U.S. Green Buildings Council Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) takes not only planning — but practice.
NREL planners have set their sights on achieving a LEED Platinum rating for the RSF, which means the building will:
- Meet the needs of the workforce — both current and future
- Maximize the efficiency of the employee workspaces
- Make the best use of the space while using the lowest attainable amount of energy per square foot.
