When certified in June 2011, A.E. Stevenson High School became the first LEED for Existing Buildings: Operations and Maintenance (LEED-EBOM) Gold high school. This certification recognizes the school’s commitment to responsible operations and maintenance processes, and reflects a deeper commitment to engaging the local community of stakeholders in environmental responsibility. CannonDesign provided the visioning, guidance and LEED project administration to ensure their diligent attention to green operations was recognized against a national sustainability benchmark.
Unlike the more familiar LEED rating systems for new construction and commercial interiors, LEED-EBOM buildings must recertify periodically to demonstrate ongoing achievement. Stevenson re-certified Gold after five more years of consultancy.
