In 2009, The Summit at Lantana was awarded LEED Gold Certification from the US Green Building Counsel, making it the largest LEED-Certified corporate campus in Texas at the time.
The LEED rating system, developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), recognizes and rates buildings, homes and communities that are designed, constructed, maintained and operated for improved environmental and human health performance.
Over 50,000 projects are currently participating in the commercial and institutional LEED rating systems, comprising over 9 billion square feet of construction space in all 50 states and 130 countries.
The overall design goal for the campus was to limit size impact on the site, preserve water quality, increase environmental and indoor air quality, and provide a working environment that was aesthetically pleasing, yet highly adaptable and functional for corporate office use. As a result, the campus was completed with a conservative footprint achieving 20% reduction in impervious services, a rainwater collection system that provides 100% of the campus’ landscaping irrigation and adaptive office buildings, well-suited for both single- and multi-tenant users.
