Turner Construction’s DTC Office Renovation Marks the Company’s 161st LEED Certified Project

October 04, 2010

The recent LEED certification of the renovation work on Turner’s local office marks the 161st LEED certified project completed by the company.  Significant green features of the 9,000 square foot office space located in the Denver Tech Center include the use of rapidly renewable materials, recycled content materials, occupant controlled lighting systems, enhanced acoustical performance, recycled construction waste, use of all low VOC construction materials, reuse of existing and recycled furnishings, and the purchase of green power.

 

Turner’s innovative approach to LEED certification helped them achieve an ID point for enhanced acoustical performance based on the installation of their office’s sound-masking system. The system enabled an increase in the privacy index for open office areas from 0 to 65, thus increasing worker productivity. Research shows that this strategy has never been utilized for credit achievement on a LEED-CI project.

 

Turner has been involved in the sustainable design and construction community from its onset by promoting and implementing environmentally sensitive design and construction practices. Turner has completed 161 LEED Certified projects around the country, including 12 LEED Platinum projects and 54 LEED Gold projects. Their completed LEED projects have totaled over $8.5 billion worth of work-in-place and over 35 million square feet. Additionally, Turner employs 1,176 LEED Accredited Professionals which is more than any other company, of any kind, in the nation. More than 50% of the Denver office staff are LEED Accredited. Turner is recognized as a world leader in Green Building and has been named “#1 Green Builder” by ENR Magazine for the past four years. Eight of Turner’s 46 nationwide offices are now LEED Certified.
