Philadelphia building is first within type to achieve LEED Platinum Certification
A planned building in Philadelphia is expected to be the first building of its kind to achieve LEED platinum certification. LEED certification can be silver, gold or platinum and certifies that construction materials, methods, and building energy usage are efficient and good for the environment. The new building will use glass that can change its tint to reduce light intensity and reduce cooling expenses.
The building contains a variety of other eco-friendly features including a heating and cooling system that saves energy by reducing the use of fans, high-efficiency LED lighting and a planted green roof that collects rainwater for reuse in cooling and irrigation systems. These systems will also reduce groundwater runoff which can cause water damage to properties – a service that SERVPRO specializes in repairing.
SERVPRO also has a variety of eco-friendly green cleaning chemicals that are certified green. Using green chemicals can help the efficiency and eco-friendly score of a building of this type should they ever need restoration or cleaning work.
