Eustis Street Fire House Earns LEED Silver Rating


HBI recently learned that the Eustis Street Fire House has earned a LEED Silver Certification from the United States Green Building Council. LEED is a rating system that  quantifies the efficiency and environmental impact of a building. For New Construction/Major Renovations, a project has to earn between 50 and 59 LEED points to be certified as LEED Silver. We are very proud that the Fire House has achieved this level of certification and grateful to our team of designers, contractors and engineers who worked hard to earn this honor. This news comes on the heels of our learning that the Hayden Building achieved LEED Platinum, the highest rating awarded by the USGBC, which just goes to show that the reuse of existing buildings is not only a culturally important act, but a sustainable one as well.
