The Collective building was recently awarded Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold recognition.
The building was designed by Harry Teague Architects, a Basalt-based firm committed to following sustainable practices in area mountain communities.
“We are proud that Snowmass Base Village Building 6 or “The Collective” was awarded the LEED Gold and we thank our client East West Partners along with the Town of Snowmass Village for choosing to meet the challenge of the strict LEED certification process,” said Henry B. Teague, president of Harry Teague Architects, in a prepared statement.
“We believe the intensive interactive design process that HTA and consultants went through has created a building that sets a high bar in environmental and energy sustainability.”
LEED certification was developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) and is the most widely used green building rating system in the world. Through design, construction and operations practices that improve environmental and human health, LEED-certified buildings are helping to make the world more sustainable.
