Peoria Staff Achieve LEED Design Designation

Sustainability program drives innovation and cost savings.


PEORIA, Ariz. (October 18, 2011) –Since 2008, the city of Peoria has been working towards a vision of being sustainable through financial stewardship and environmental responsibility. One of the key initiatives was to credential staff members within the Planning and Community Development, Engineering, and Public Works/Utilities Departments under the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED (Leadership in Energy Environmental Design) system. To date, eleven staff members have been certified as LEED Green Associates, and one staff member has been certified as a LEED Accredited Professional, with the specialization of Building Design and Construction.

LEED is an internationally recognized green building certification system. Developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) in March 2000, LEED provides building owners and operators with a framework for identifying and implementing practical and measurable green building design, construction, operations and maintenance solution.

“For Peoria, it means having individuals on staff who know how to plan sustainable development, and to design, build, and operate buildings which will be more resource efficient,” said Ed Striffler, design and construction manager for the city. Striffler is a LEED Accredited Professional and licensed Architect.

Having a building LEED certified provides independent, third-party verification that a building or community was designed and built using strategies aimed at achieving high performance in five key strategies: sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection and indoor environmental quality.

LEED-certified buildings are designed to provide lower operating costs; reduced waste to landfills; conserve energy and water; healthier and safer for occupants, and reduce harmful greenhouse gas emissions.

Last June, the city completed the renovation of the Peoria Municipal Court. The project goal for the $11 million expansion was to do the renovation sustainably and achieve LEED Silver Certification. The project team was able to surpass this goal without increasing the budget to achieve LEED Gold.

“Having resources within the city that were well versed in the LEED rating system, allowed us to make fully informed design decisions when evaluating ‘greener’ alternatives alongside our design team and contractor,” said Striffler.

The Court project was able to demonstrate a 28 percent energy use reduction, 32 percent water use reduction, 86 percent of the construction waste was diverted away from landfills and 22 percent of the construction materials were recycled content.
