LEED Gold for The Barney Building

Photos by Mike Sinclair.

In early February, The Barney Building was officially LEED Gold certified by the U.S. Green Building Council. LEED certification is an indication of a building designed, constructed and operating with sustainability in mind. RMTA’s client, Karbank Real Estate, approached RMTA to generate design schematics for the 1968 commercial office building late in the summer of 2012. Attracted to the mid-century character of this particular building and it’s prime location in town, the group wanted to re-use the existing structure. The design team was charged with maintaining that character while completely renovating and modernizing the 32,000 square foot building.
