Charles Luck in Georgetown awarded LEED Goal Certification
Charles Luck is proud to announce that their newest location, the Georgetown Studio, a metro-storefront in Washington, D.C., has received the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold Certification from the United States Green Building Council.
“We are honored to receive LEED Gold Certification. Our associates and company as a whole have always been committed to honoring design and the environment, specifically,” Anderson McNeill, president of Charles Luck, noted in a press release. “We look forward to continuing to pursue innovative strategies to optimize timeless sustainable initiatives that complement and enhance our design studios in Georgetown and locations in the mid-Atlantic.”
Linda Davisson, senior consultant, Sustainable Design Consulting, LLC, added in the press release: “Charles Luck was an outstanding and involved client who actively pursued strategies for long-term sustainability. The small footprint of the project did not discourage the team in pursuing many sustainable strategies with the goal to achieve LEED Silver certification and pushing to Gold, achieving all 67 points they pursued, surpassing the 60-point minimum.”
The Charles Luck Georgetown Studio was designed with energy-saving heating, air conditioning, ventilation, and electrical fixtures and equipment. Additionally, water-efficient plumbing fixtures have been installed to support the high performance goals of the space. Other features include collecting recyclables to divert from landfills; green housekeeping, which assures indoor air quality and limiting chemicals and waste; and collecting occupant feedback on thermal comfort to help improve conditions, if needed. Charles Luck also now proudly supports the generation of renewable energy.
Internationally recognized, the LEED rating system grants four levels of sustainability certification — Certified, Silver, Gold, and Platinum — providing a framework for identifying and implementing green building design, construction, operation, and maintenance. In order to meet LEED requirements, new construction must take into account elements such as sustainable sites, water efficiency, energy and atmosphere (heating and cooling), indoor environmental quality, and innovation in design.
The new 700-square-foot two-story Georgetown Studio opened earlier this month at 1111 34th Street, Washington, D.C., on historic Cady’s Alley. The space was built in the early 1900’s.
