Another demonstration of our commitment to sustainability can be seen in our LEED certified buildings located in Mt. Airy, NC and Grand Rapids, MI. The LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification is awarded by the U.S. Green Building Council. Our Mt. Airy facility is the first manufacturing plant in the Cascade Family of Companies to receive LEED certification. The Mt. Airy facility was engineered to improve the quality of life for the occupants, save energy costs and improve the environment.
In addition to our Mt. Airy facility, the Cascade Engineering Corporate Headquarters is LEED Certified “Platinum”. The Platinum designation indicates the highest level within the LEED EB (existing building) rating system, and exemplified the tenets of sustainability on a day-to-day basis.
