HARC’s LEED Platinum headquarters was recently featured in Modern Steel Construction, the official publication of the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC). The article highlighted the Whole Building Life Cycle Assessment (WBLCA) undertaken by the project’s civil engineering partner, Walter P Moore, and the resulting utilization of a steel-framed structure, one that led to a 20% reduction in embodied CO2 associated with the building’s structural and enclosure systems.
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.
Please join HARC researchers and other community leaders at the Air Alliance Houston’s State of the Air Gala on Wednesday, February 21, 2018.
