Green Architecture comes to the Music Industry
As a result of the American Clean Energy and Security Act, more individuals are watching their recycling and waste, while bigger companies are looking to green architecture solutions to make their buildings more energy efficient.
Even the music industry has started to take more of an interest in promoting sustainability as the new National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences building in Santa Monica, California recently became Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design LEED certified by the United States Green Building Council.
Existing buildings seeking LEED certification must receive third-party verification that their structure and design work towards sustainability while minimizing the building's environmental impact.
CoStar real estate information group reveals that the Grammy Building includes low-flow faucets, dual flush toilets and self-adjusting lights.
In addition, individuals who drive low-emissions vehicles to work will also receive preferred parking spots.
Project management director William Roberston said, "Designing and building to LEED standards, especially the gold level of certification, can have an extremely positive impact on employers, employees and the community and that Academy."
Those interested in a career in green architecture will find many resources for further information at institutions nationwide.
