National Grid Earns LEED Gold for Green Design Innovation

National Grid’s renovated facility in Northborough, Massachusetts, recently earned Gold-level LEED commercial interior certification from the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC).  The building, which houses approximately 600 employees, received LEED Gold certification for its state-of-the-art “green” design, amenities and construction.

This certification of the Northborough building marks that second consecutive year that a National Grid building has received LEED distinction. Last year, National Grid’s Waltham, Mass. corporate center at Reservoir Woods earned the highest rating -- Platinum-level LEED certification – from the USGBC for its green design.

The USBC’s benchmark Leadership in Energy and environmental Design (LEED) is an independent green building rating system.  LEED Commercial Interior is the energy industry’s leading recognized system for certifying green interiors that are high-performance, productive, healthy places to work.
