Gateway Goes Platinum

The Gateway Project in the City of Scottsdale has just received the highest rating for Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) as recognized by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). The project originally designated as a gold level project was pushed by design and construction changes to attain the Platinum LEED Rating. Through the partnership of the Designers, Owners and Contractors using the CM@R process this project was able to progress from the Gold to the Platinum Level. This is the 6th known Platinum Certified Project in the State of Arizona and only the second in the City of Scottsdale.

LEED is used to promote sustainability in all aspects of the building process. It accomplishes this by identifying and measuring performance in five areas: sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection and indoor environmental quality. It takes a large commitment from the owners and serious effort by the designers and the contractors to make a LEED project successful. Valley Rain is extremely proud to announce that the first of its LEED projects has been Certified as LEED Platinum.
