April 8, 2011
Viracon in Owatonna, Minn., announced that 26 of its employees have recently become LEED Accredited Professionals. The accredited employees work in a variety of roles at Viracon locations across the country. Each achieved either the LEED AP BD+C or LEED Green Associate designation.
“Glass choice is critically important to a commercial building’s energy performance and therefore LEED certification. We want our team to fully understand the LEED rating system in order to provide the best possible advice and support to design teams working to achieve LEED status or to simply incorporate sustainable design concepts into their buildings,” says Kelly Schuller, senior vice president, sales and marketing at Viracon. “A deeper understanding of sustainability across the company also helps Viracon as we work to make our own operations greener. We are pleased that so many within Viracon are rising to the challenge.”
