Northwest Fresno development recognized for green construction practices

The Fresno BeeApril 17, 2014 

The Offices at Palm Crossing, a Lance-Kashian & Co. development in northwest Fresno, received an LEED Platinum rating for new construction from the U.S. Green Building Council.

LEED, or Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design, ratings are part of a green building certification program that recognizes sustainable building strategies and practices, according to the USGBC.

The 40,000-square-foot complex at Palm and Herndon avenues was designed from the ground up with a range of energy-saving and sustainability measures including recycled building materials, taking advantage of natural sunlight for daytime lighting, efficient air conditioning systems, motion sensors to control lights, water conservation systems, and an array of solar panels shading the parking lot.
