While we’ve been talking about how cost-saving green architecture can be for some time now, a new nationwide government report has actually documented some impressive statistics that make it official. The Government Services Administration (GSA) commissioned the Department of Energy’s Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) to evaluate 22 green federal buildings across the country and came up with some amazing numbers showing that green buildings not only cost less to build and maintain, they also have happier, more satisfied occupants.
