LEED Gold Certification: The U.S. Green Building Council awarded the Daikin Texas Technology Park, Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) Gold certification for our office interiors. That means the DTTP has joined a select group of innovative buildings that have a commitment to sustainability. "It's our belief that we have a responsibility to help create a greener world for our community and future generations, and this certification is an important part of our overall sustainability efforts,” said Michelle Jack, vice president of general affairs. LEED certification can provide a number of benefits for building owners. Along with the obvious environmental advantages, LEED-certified buildings cost less to operate and are more desirable for occupants.
