LEED for Commercial Interiors is the rating system that certifies high-performance green tenant spaces that are healthy and productive places to work, and require minimum cost to operate and maintain. In order to achieve the Gold level of certification, MaGrann made production decisions to create a green space, including the use of low-VOC paints, adhesives, and sealants; FSC-certified wood for cabinets, doors, and windowsills; and recycled wood for conference room furniture. Additionally, the cubicles are made with a high percentage of recycled materials, and the construction team diverted 75% of the waste from landfills.
The Navy Yard Central Green District developers Liberty Property Trust and Synterra Partners supported this LEED certification project by upgrading the plumbing fixtures to today’s low-flow standards, as newer, more efficient options have become available since the building’s original CS certification was achieved in 2005.
MaGrann continues to work on building an energy efficient, green-conscious community at The Navy Yard and throughout the region! If your company is interested in learning more about MaGrann’s process and experience, please contact Emma Raymont at or 267-625-5526.
