Coke goes green

I discovered today that one of the projects I spent about 2.5 years on, the new World of Coca-Cola, finally got awarded LEED gold last week! (That's me in the lobby at the Grand Opening last year.) For those of you who do not know about LEED, it stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design and is a building rating system developed by the USGBC (U.S. Green Building Council). Achieving gold is a great testament to TCCC and to our whole project team in persevering through the design and construction to make sure that this vision actually came to fruition. I can't take much credit, since we had a LEED consultant on the job who documented everything, but I hope to get to work on more projects like these in the future!
