We just got the news this week! Congratulations to our friends at Wiener Properties, Andresen Architecture, and Design West Engineering for achieving LEED Silver certification on the new California DMV Commercial Drivers License in Fontana, California.
This makes our second LEED-certified DMV facility, with one more on the way. We're proud to help the State of California meet it's green building goals. We're especially proud that we were able to meet those goals within a tight budget, demonstrating once again that energy-efficient green building strategies can be employed in a cost-effective manner.
This project is a single-story, 7400 sf stick-built structure. It features roofing and paving that reduce heat island effect, water-efficient landscaping, water-efficient plumbing fixtures, LED lighting, loads of solar photovoltaics, regional materials, excellent indoor air quality, nice daylight and views.
So, next time your heading out our way on I-10 -- keep one eye to the north side of the freeway through Fontana. You might just catch a glimpse of Fontana's newest LEED Silver certified building.
