ChicagoCAC New Addition Awarded LEED Certification

Holabird & Root is pleased to learn that the Chicago Children's Advocacy Center (CCAC) has achieved LEED Gold certification. Our firm provided the design for the 18,900 sq.ft. addition that was completed in conjunction with the Public Building Commission this past spring.

"LEED, or Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design, is a green building certification program overseen by the U.S. Green Building Council (UCGBC) that, according to USGBC, recognizes best-in-class building strategies and practices. LEED certification is recognized across the globe as the premier mark of achievement in green building.

Buildings that undergo LEED certification are evaluated by a rating system that measures the overall sustainability of the project site, energy and water efficiency, indoor environmental and air quality, and the use of sustainable materials and resources."
