Countryside City Hall and Police Headquarters Receives LEED Gold Certification

The Countryside City Hall and Police Headquarters project in Countryside, IL has exceeded the design team’s sustainable certification target and has received LEED Gold Certification.

LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is a green building rating system and is a globally recognized symbol of sustainability achievement and leadership. To achieve LEED Certified status requires 40 points; 50 points will put a project at the Silver level; between 60 and 79 points earn Gold certification; and buildings that reach a minimum of 80 points are awarded Platinum status.

This 34,900-sf facility is also the first net zero designed municipal building in Illinois.
