Herman Miller Design Center Earns LEED Gold

Herman Miller’s National Design Center in Washington, D.C. lands a Leed for Commercial Interiors (Leed-CI) Gold Certification from the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). The 16,000-square-foot new center for the office furniture manufacturer has accrued 39 credit points, just three credits shy of the highest level of certification--Leed Platinum. A pilot for the recently unveiled Leed-CI category, the facility includes a gallery of Herman Miller furnishings, conference and communal areas, a cafĂ©, and a working office environment for Herman Miller’s sales team.

"Sustainable guidelines can result in a more thoughtful and integrated approach to project goals, design elements, and building systems," says Ray Kennedy, director of corporate merchandising, A & D, and customer relations for Herman Miller.
