Two Shaw facilities achieve LEED certification

Home News Two Shaw facilities achieve LEED certification

Dalton—Shaw Industries Group has achieved the LEED Silver designation for Plant 72, an administrative building on the corporate campus, and the Shaw Family Health Center, both located here.

Recognized globally as the premier mark of achievement in green building, LEED certification requires that building projects meet specific thresholds to achieve different levels (Certified, Silver, Gold and Platinum). Points are accrued in five green design categories: sustainable sites, water efficiency, energy and atmosphere, materials and resources and indoor environmental quality.

“These LEED certifications are a testament to Shaw’s holistic approach to sustainability,” said Paul Murray, vice president of sustainability and environmental affairs at Shaw. “We are focused on designing and operating our facilities to minimize environmental impact and maintain ongoing comfort and efficiency.”
