Certified building. To attain
the Energy Star rating a program incorporating
the following measures has been instituted:
efficiency enhancement has been achieved
by the replacement of incandescent
and HID lighting with energy efficient
LED and CFl lighting throughout the
facility. All lighting equipment that
has reached the end of its useful
life is recycled. The use of incandescent
bulbs has been eliminated.

Cleaning programs have been
mapped to LEED cleaning program standards
and incorporate environmentally friendly
