The U.S. Green Building Council recently announced that over one billion square feet of commercial projects had been certified. Part of that was achieved with the Sweetwater Sound headquarters which achieved LEED Platinum. We also have a number of projects with Ball State University and Ivy Tech Community College that are registered and working towards certification. But whether or not our clients choose LEED certification, we understand the dynamics of image, function, environment and technology; efficiency, sustainability, and expandability, and we strive for the very best for our clients.
