Signature Centre scores LEED platinum certification
Aardex LLC, a full service design, development and construction firm, has received LEED Platinum certification from the United States Green Building Council for the Signature Centre.
This is the first commercial Platinum building in Colorado and, at 186,000 square feet, the largest speculative LEED Platinum project in the United States.
“Our staff outdid themselves. We are now the greenest building in Colorado,” said Aardex CEO Rick Butler, whose firm developed, designed, constructed and now manages the Signature Centre.
“We received the Platinum certification and the staff achieved it at standard construction costs. We can do LEED for free.”
The Signature Centre, a five story structure, features underfloor air throughout the building with individual temperature and ventilation controls.
Daylight harvesting via interior and exterior light shelving, abundant glass and individual lighting showcase the many features promoting productivity and creativity in this state-of-the-art workplace.
“Aardex is to be commended for achieving Platinum LEED certification. This facility is one that both the community and its customers can be proud of,” said Rick Fedrizzi, President, CEO, Founding Chair, U.S. Green Building Council.
“The Signature Centre will be a showcase for high-performance and energy-efficiency and an inspiration for others to match it .”
