LEED is about Leadership in Efficiency

LEED is an acronym for “Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design.” A LEED certified building means construction incorporates very energy-efficient building materials and systems resulting in a reduced carbon footprint with minimal impact on the environment. Meeting the strict requirements for certification takes careful planning of the building materials selection process as well as strong knowledge of the inefficiencies of key mechanical systems to be installed as part of the infrastructure to the building. Above all, it take an appreciation for the environment and a commitment to sustainability.

Russell Construction Services is proud of the relationship we have with VSECU and GMP and we appreciate their commitment to sustainability.

Green Mountain Power’s Energy Innovation Center. Formerly Eastmann’s on Merchants Row, underwent total renovation and is now LEED Gold Certified. Construction Management by Russell Construction Services of Rutland VT.

Green Mountain Power’s state-of-the-art Energy Innovation Center now graces the long-vacant Eastmann’s building on Merchants Row in Rutland.

Russell Construction Services was tasked with this project made very challenging due to the run down condition of the building at the outset, a tight budget and short timeline.

Many of the most modern energy efficiency features available were incorporated into the total renovation, which transformed this old dilapidated building into one of the most energy-efficient buildings in Rutland!
