The Washington DC Showroom of Jasper based Kimball Office has been awarded LEED-CI Gold certification from the U.S. Green Building Council.

The showroom received this certification for energy and water usage, lighting, and material selections, as well as incorporating a variety of other sustainable strategies.

LEED, or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, is a certification program for buildings and communities that guides their design, construction, operations, and maintenance toward sustainability. It’s based on prerequisites and credits that a project meets to achieve a certification level.

The LEED certification on a building is one of the highest marks of quality and achievement in green building.

The showroom received points for various design and structural elements. The showroom’s vast amount of windows allows for added natural daylight and LED lighting reduces energy usage and cooling costs. Low emitting materials, including Kimball Office’s furniture, construction materials, and architectural features enhance Indoor Air Quality.
