Here at USGBC, we take building performance seriously—and that includes our own office. Our headquarters in Washington, D.C., earned LEED Platinum certification under LEED for Interior Design and Construction (Commercial Interiors, under LEED 2009). We know that maintaining a high-performing office space is crucial, so we use the Arc platform to track the ongoing performance of our space.
We want to share a behind-the-scenes look at our space. So on Education @USGBC we’ve created a new course, Case Study: USGBC Headquarters Facility Management
This case study describes how the USGBC Facility Management team is integrating people, work and the workplace to drive innovation within the organization, allowing USGBC to achieve its mission and vision to the highest degree. Learn how the USGBC Facility Management team tests pilot projects and implements new technologies to achieve triple-bottom-line benefits for people, planet and profit.
Also, the case study highlights the implementation of Arc to track sustainability performance in the headquarters space and the benefits Arc offers for performance management in any building.
