LEED Green Certification for IMCO General Construction Office Building

The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) conferred LEED certification to IMCO General Construction for their office and headquarters at Ferndale, Washington. The IMCO headquarters was conceived and constructed by Axiom Design Build of Seattle.

IMCO General Construction office and headquarters

The venture was brought to life by a team of expert architects, interior decorators, landscape architects, civil engineers, structural engineers, mechanical engineers and lighting experts.

According to the Founder, CEO and President of the USGBC, Rick Fedrizzi, the meticulous green measures adopted by IMCO and Axiom emphatically deserved the LEED authentication for green buildings and have proved how much can be achieved in attaining the high levels of green compliance stipulated by the USGBC. The IMCO structures were finished in 2010 summer and are owned by the founders of IMCO General Construction.

The USGBC green recognition of IMCO displays the humane and caring nature of the company in providing a safe and healthy workplace for its employees. Similar to IMCO’s dedication to increase green building procedures, Axiom has also developed many buildings with green compliance. However, IMCO headquarters is their first project to earn them a LEED certification.

A few salient procedures adopted at IMCO that earned the LEED certificate are: ventilation and heating systems aimed at best energy utilization, maintaining excellent air quality, a receptacle of 16,000 gallons fixed underground to collect rainwater to be used later for irrigation, clever lighting arrangement that makes best use of daylight, and use of regional salvaged materials in the building. In the building, there are also open spaces, a lunchroom and a gymnasium constructed using salvaged local wood and other materials.
