Stinson Morrison Hecker achieves LEED certification!

It took a bit longer than expected, but Stinson Morrison Hecker’s  new Clayton offices made LEED Silver.  Some of the highlights of their LEED strategy include selecting a LEED certified site (the Centene Building), water use reduction, “Green Power“, recycled and regional material use, low emitting material specification and use of rapidly renewable materials.

It took a bit longer than expected – we held up submitting the application till the Centene Building finished their LEED Core and Shell application.  After that was finished earlier this summer, we made our construction submission.  Its an example of the timeline lag for the typical LEED application – design submissions are typically completed after the building starts construction, and construction applications happen after the building is finished.

Congratulations to Stinson and the rest of the design team, including Burns and McDonnell Engineers and Clayco Construction!
