LEED Projects

LEED Silver Certification Project, Carpenters Union Training Center
New Construction | Route 404/18 & Vaughn Road, Georgetown, DE 19947

The Carpenters Union Training Center was built to LEED Silver Certification specifications, combining state of the art materials that fit the existing community and surrounding area, which is a testament to all the team members involved.


In partnership with the green initiative, a LEED Silver Certification was achieved by BCI and the design team. By performing many interior scopes, including the use of FSC certified lumber and recycled content, BCI earned additional points to achieve LEED Certification.


As the building was to be built in a largely rural area, blending in the building with the local surroundings was a key element in the design. The shape of the building resembles an agricultural building which further facilitates the marriage of a modern structure with its host surroundings.
