As a leader in the inkjet and toner market, Long Beach based LD Products wanted to reflect its commitment to sustainability and green initiatives. Enter a build-to-suit project within the Long Beach Douglas Park Development that is a new, LEED Platinum, two-story 107,000 s.f., concrete tilt-up, office/industrial/warehouse facility that includes 20,000 s.f. of office tenant improvements. The project is the first ever industrial warehouse building to achieve a LEED Platinum Certification under the new Construction Rating System in the world! It also received a USGBC-LA Innovation Award for water efficiency. Aside from having the building implement many of the LEED certified building attributes, the project has also utilized its large spans of roof for solar panels and capturing energy. Further, all building materials used for this project contain a minimum of 20% recycled content and a minimum of 20% of the total building materials used on the project were extracted, processed and manufactured locally.
