IRVING, Texas & DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Fluor Corporation’s (NYSE: FLR) commuter rail maintenance facility for the Regional Transportation District’s (RTD) commuter rail network in metro Denver has been awarded LEED® Gold certification.
The commuter rail maintenance facility is part of Fluor’s Eagle P3 Project to design, build, finance, operate and maintain three commuter rail lines that are scheduled to open in 2016.
The LEED rating system, developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), is the foremost program for design, construction and operation of green buildings, improving environmental and human health performance.
The 230,000-square-foot facility’s sustainable features were evaluated based on the long-term environmental and fiscal impact benefiting the operation of the facility as well as the local community.
“This facility will benefit the community for years to come,” said Terry Towle, Fluor’s Infrastructure president. “Fluor's collaborative approach to project development, execution and delivery enhanced the sustainable features of this facility, which is recognized by the achievement of LEED Gold certification.”
After a LEED plaque dedication on Saturday, July 25, with speakers from Fluor, PCL Construction (the design-build subcontractor) and RTD, the commuter rail maintenance facility was opened for public tours.
