The Phipps Center for Sustainable Landscapes (CSL) recently earned the highest LEED Platinum certification yet achieved for a new green building. The project systematically demonstrates high performance in site design, water & energy efficiency, indoor environmental quality and material conservation and use. The US Green Building Council granted the project 63 of a possible 69 points under the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) version 2 rating system. Only one other new building has achieved this level of green building distinction. The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader. Want to see your story on Inhabitat ?
