Texana Center’s West Campus has been awarded LEED® Silver established by the U.S. Green Building Council and verified by the Green Building Certification Institute. The U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED green building certification system is the foremost program for the design, construction and operation of green buildings.
This is the first LEED Certified project in west Fort Bend County and encompasses two buildings; a Service Center for Texana staff and Learning Center for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and green space between the two buildings.
Texana Center achieved LEED certification for energy use, lighting, water and material use as well as incorporating a variety of other sustainable strategies. By using less energy and water, LEED certified building save money for families, businesses and taxpayers; reduce greenhouse gas emissions; and contribute to a healthier environment for residents, workers and the larger community.
George Patterson, Texana C.E.O. said “As careful stewards of public funds we believe that our stewardship should extend not only to the people we serve but to the community at large. Constructing “green” buildings is not only environmentally friendly but it will save money in utility and maintenance costs that can then be used to enhance patient services.”
“The green building movement offers an unprecedented opportunity to respond to the most-important challenges of our time, including global climate change, dependence on non-sustainable and expensive sources of energy and threats to human health,” said Rick Fedrizzi, President, CEO & Founding Chair, U.S. Green Building Council. “The work of innovative building projects such as Texana Center’s West Campus is a fundamental driving force in the green building movement.”
