Frost Bank Tower receivies LEED-Gold certification

January 5th, 2011

The Frost Bank Tower has recently become the first highrise building in downtown Austin to receive a LEED-Gold certification.

The LEED certification, developed by the U.S. Green Building Council, is a third-party verification that recognizes structures and communities that were designed and constructed to improve efficiency and decrease environmental impact. LEED provides a flexible framework to help building owners create and implement practical, effective green building solutions.

The building received a very high EPA Engery Star rating, and features waste reduction, water conservation, environmentally friendly cleaning practices, and corporate environmental initiatives.
