Seattle Tops in Green Buildings

According to an article in the April, 23 2008 issue of the Puget Sound Business Journal, Seattle Mayor Greg Nickels claims that Seattle has more LEED™ certified buildings than any other US city.

Seattle Mayor Greg Nickels pointed to the U.S. Green Building Council, which said Seattle has 41 projects that have certified by the council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) national rating system. Nickels pointed out that 10 of those LEED-certified projects, including the new central library and City Hall, are municipal projects.

Congratulations to the members of Puget Sound ASHRAE who have helped to realize this accomplishment!

And congratulations to the Cascadia Region Green Building Council for having two cities in their region top the list for the nation!
