Pattern Energy Achieves LEED Gold Certification

Pattern Energy, a leading independent power company focused on renewable energy, has achieved LEED Gold certification on their new Houston office, designed by Inventure Design. 

Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, or LEED, is the most widely used green building rating system across the world, making LEED certification a globally recognized symbol of sustainability. Projects pursuing LEED certification can achieve one of four LEED rating levels based on points they earn across several different categories. The process tasks project teams to pursue innovative solutions that focus on public health and the environment, while reducing a project’s life cycle. 

In pursuing LEED certification, site location, water usage, lighting and material selection, air quality, and energy usage were crucial elements that propelled this project to a LEED Gold Certification for Commercial Interiors. The space highlights energy and a commitment to do better, and to work better. When planning their new space, Pattern Energy identified key needs and wants while integrating strategies from their other North American offices. The space needed to celebrate culture, drive efficiency, promote teamwork, and increase employee health and well-being. Through careful programming and visioning sessions, Inventure Design was able to help brand Pattern Energy’s space in accordance with their culture and mission.
