The UPS Supply Chain Solutions office building located at 12380 Morris Road in Alpharetta, Georgia, has received Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Platinum certification with the help of the Cushman & Wakefield Facilities Management team of Russell Copeland, Julie Glass, Chris Allen and Corey Miller.
The building received a score of 81 points, and is one of only two LEED-EB Platinum buildings in Alpharetta and one of six in the state. Last week the company held a celebration to recognize this outstanding achievement, including remarks on behalf of the city from David Belle Isle, the newly elected mayor of Alpharetta.
“Market transformation happens one building at a time. UPS understands the value of LEED and has exemplified extraordinary leadership in reshaping their sector,” said Mahesh Ramanujam, president and CEO, USGBC. “The success of LEED is due to the partnership and support of those committed to advancing green building and sustainability. Each new LEED certification is one step closer to revolutionizing the environment in which live, work and play.”
Leaders across the globe have made LEED the most widely used green-building rating system in the world with 1.85 million square feet of construction space certifying every day. LEED certification provides independent verification of a building or neighborhood’s green features, allowing for the design, construction, operations and maintenance of resource-efficient, high-performing, healthy, cost-effective buildings. LEED is the triple bottom line in action, benefiting people, planet and profit.
