CEC Companies Headquarters Earns LEED Gold
DALLAS, Aug. 30, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- CEC Companies announced that it has earned LEED Gold® certification for its 35,000 square foot corporate headquarters located at 1275 Valley View Lane, Irving, Texas. LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is an internationally recognized green building rating and certification system of the U.S. Green Building Council.
In 2017, CEC Companies' Facilities team, along with our development partners Merriman Anderson Architects and Brassfield & Gorrie, performed an initial LEED feasibility assessment of the building. Built in 2016, the facility includes office space, a pre-fabrication shop, fleet maintenance and warehousing space. The initial study highlighted energy efficiency and sustainability measures incorporated during the original building design, construction and operations phase, which correlated with LEED prerequisites and points. Additional LEED points required minor modification to existing infrastructure or process improvements to further a positive impact on the environment.
"Earning LEED certification for our corporate headquarters is a milestone for our company and our sustainability initiatives. The certification represents our company-wide commitment to reducing our energy footprint," said Ray Waddell, Chief Executive Officer. "Additionally, CEC Companies' commitment to development and usage of increasingly energy efficient processes and construction materials, demonstrated to the USGBC the benefits of CEC Companies' commitment to sustainability extend beyond our corporate headquarters to the wider landscape of our customers' energy consumption."
