How CMTA achieved LEED Platinum
CMTA Consulting Engineers, a top 60 MEP consulting engineering firm, is pleased to announce that its new Lexington Office building has been certified LEED® Platinum by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). This building is the first LEED Platinum Office Building in Kentucky and the first LEED Platinum building in Lexington.
There are currently only seven LEED Platinum buildings in Kentucky, including Deep Green Residence Hall at Berea College, which was engineered by CMTA.
LEED® Platinum projects are required to meet a minimum of 80 points across seven categories including sustainable sites, water efficiency, energy and atmosphere, materials and resources, indoor environmental quality, innovation, and regional priority credits. CMTA's building received 81 points which included all points for the energy and atmosphere category. Energy saving features of the building include insulated concrete form (ICF) walls, geothermal heating and cooling, daylighting, solar photovoltaics, and solar powered internally actuated diffusers. The building received a 2013 Environmental Award from the Lexington-Fayette Urban County Government Environmental Commission.
