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.
