In Overland, Alberici always comes to mind when we thing of green building and design. It is nice to see that Clayco is also committed to LEEDs and environmentally friendly design.

Interestingly, at a recent tour I had an opportunity to talk to Mr. Alberici. He told me that their headquarters building, that is currently believed to be the highest rated platnuim LEEDs certified building in the world, did not cost them a dime above their original budget for a typical class A office space.

When you consider that as well as the operational savings from reduced electrical needs, water usage, etc why would any company not consider these design elements?

Tell me when this thread is updated:
