LEED-Certified Building Rankings for 2010: Where Does Florida Fit In?

America is going green.  Everyone from car manufacturers to restaurant owners to the news media is looking for ways to save energy and preserve the environment.  The building industry is also making the jump, through eco-conscious products and energy management.

The U.S. Green Building Council recently released the top 10 states in the United States for LEED-certified projects in 2010.  The LEED green building certification system is the premier program for the design, construction, operation and maintenance of green buildings.  Their objective is to use less energy so LEED-certified buildings will save money for businesses, taxpayers and families, while also reducing greenhouse gas emissions and contributing to the overall health of our environment.

  • District of Columbia

  • New Mexico
  • New Hampshire
  • Oregon
  • South Carolina
  • Washington
  • Illinois
  • Arkansas
  • Colorado

Advanced Control Corporation is a member of the U.S. Green Building Council and a green building pioneer in the state of Florida.  We participated in the first LEED-certified building in Broward Country—the Broward Community College South Regional Library.  Advanced Control Corporation installed the building automation/ energy management system in the 70,000 square foot library. To stay green, we provided direct digital control of the mechanical equipment in the facility, which controls and monitors all of the air handling units, indoor air quality and the chilled water system.
