US: Deckers Outdoor headquarters gains LEED certification
Footwear specialist Deckers Outdoor has gained LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) silver certification for its corporate headquarters.
The certification, from the US Green Building Council (USGBC), is awarded for buildings that are energy efficient and environmentally sustainable in design and operation.
The 190,000sq ft headquarters was built to the LEED standard, with measures including: sustainable sites; water efficiency; energy and atmosphere; materials and resources; and indoor environmental quality.
Among the features included in the building are parking spaces reserved for energy-efficient autos and power stations for electric vehicles, bike storage and showering/changing facilities for employees biking to work; environmentally friendly irrigation and water drainage systems; efficient energy and HVAC management systems; and recycled building materials supported by local companies.
"Our commitment to the environment is reflected in our new headquarters," said CEO Angel Martinez. "Achieving LEED certification confirms the considerable effort we put into creating a healthy atmosphere for our employees through a building that is not only an attractive place to work, but also one that is supported by sustainable materials and systems."
