HARC’s New Home: A Vision of Sustainability Realized
As a result of beginning with the end in mind, HARC's headquarters is on track to achieving a Platinum Level Leaders in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification - making it the first LEED Platinum green building in The Woodlands, Texas. Platinum is the most environmentally stringent LEED certification issued by the U.S Green Building Council. Check out the interactive web application "Building a Legacy” to learn more about HARC’s origins, how the building was designed with nature, behind the scenes design features, and the innovative sustainable technologies that enable our building to achieve an over 50% energy savings compared to LEED base targets.
Thanks to all of the organizations who have helped support our building mission from design through construction.
HARC's Platinum certification is the highest environmental building achievement attainable by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), making HARC the first LEED Platinum building in The Woodlands and Montgomery County.
