A town center in Yountville, California recently joined the prestigious but select ranks of buildings gunning for LEED Platinum status this year.
With a plethora of eco-conscious attributes and features, the complex saves over 40 percent more energy than California state law requires. The 2.5-acre building uses low-life-cycle impact materials, has ground pumps for heating and cooling, and makes use of solar-energy harvesting roofs. The town center in Yountville is a world-class example of the harmonious balance of good design and environmentalism.
