New York State Parks’ Taconic Regional Headquarters has been awarded LEED® Platinum certification by the US Green Building Council and verified by the Green Building Certification Institute (GBCI). The adapted school building is the first public building in New York State to win LEED Platinum for new construction or major renovation projects – the highest level of certification for the design, construction, and operation of high performance green buildings.
Reuse of an existing building, the 1930 Staatsburg School in Mills-Norrie State Park, was a significant factor in reaching the Platinum level certification. Other factors included significant energy use savings through a geothermal heat pump system to heat and cool the building, electricity-generating solar panel arrays, highly energy efficient windows, innovative insulation methods, and state-of-the-art efficient lighting.
Selux is proud to be a part of this project with our energy efficient Saturn Cutoff and Notch Bollard luminaires featured in this beautiful Hudson Valley location.
