SkySong 4 Building Awarded LEED Silver Certification

SkySong 4 has joined its fellow office buildings in the project in a very “green” club — and continues to set the standard for office work space innovation.

The four-story, 141,000-square-foot office and research building at the intersection of SkySong Boulevard and Innovation Place has achieved Silver LEED certification from the U.S. Green Building Council for its sustainable design and construction.

LEED—Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design—is a certification program that sets the standard for environmentally responsible construction in the U.S. Buildings are measured based on the number of points they earn across the categories of green building, such as energy, water, indoor environment, location and materials.

SkySong in 2009 earned environmental plaudits for the first three completed buildings on the site, SkySong 1, 2 and 3, joining only a handful of projects in the Valley to have achieved Silver Certification of higher, and one of the few non-governmental projects to achieve such status.
