General Dynamics C4 Systems
: 08 December, 2009  (Company News)
Scottsdale office receives environmental certification from the US Green Building Council
General Dynamics C4 Systems has received a second certification under the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design - Existing Building (LEED-EB), this time under the new Operations Maintenance designation or LEED-EB/OM. The award was received November 30, 2009, for its 850,000 square-foot office building in Scottsdale. It is the first industrial site of its size in the United States to receive the LEED-EB/OM designation by the US Green Building Council. In 2005, General Dynamics received its first certification for the 700,000 square-foot Roosevelt building, which is part of the Scottsdale campus. LEED is the nation's preeminent program for the design, construction and operation of high-performance green buildings.

'The City of Scottsdale acknowledges General Dynamics C4 Systems for its leadership and commitment in pursuit of sustainability initiatives,' said City of Scottsdale Mayor W Lane. 'This announcement brings the number of 'certified' Green Buildings to five along the McDowell Corridor, continuing to support the revitalization goals of the city.'

LEED-EB recognizes organizations that have achieved and maintained sustainable standards for their office buildings. Organizations are rated on criteria such as cleaning, maintenance, chemical use, indoor air quality, energy efficiency, water efficiency, as well as recycling and exterior maintenance programs.

To date, General Dynamics in Scottsdale has:


* Reduced potable water consumption by approximately 32 percent since 2000.
* Reduced overall energy consumption by 28 percent since 1991.
* Diverted approximately 575 tons of recyclable materials from local landfills.
* Converted 250,000 square feet of grass to more sustainable land use that uses less water.
* Partnered with the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts at Arizona State University to enhance sustainable design concepts.
