NPCA Gets the Gold--in LEED Certification

NPCA’s DC headquarters received LEED Gold certification from the US Green Building Council in November 2011. This official recognition is the culmination of almost two years of planning in conjunction with our designers, OTJ Architects. This distinction furthers our Core Values, helping to provide a workplace of excellence. We will soon offer monthly tours of the headquarters to help promote green building features to others; scroll down for a virtual tour. (All photos © Chris Spielmann/www.spielmannstudio.com.)

NPCA's headquarters at 777 6th Street received its LEED Existing Building certification from the USGBC, making NPCA a green company in a green building.

Guests to NPCA are greeted with walls of reclaimed wood, regionally quarried stone, and a variety of national park images.

NPCA received LEED credit for providing changing rooms for employees that bike to work. The spaces also include water-efficient features.

Nature-inspired design elements help emphasize our mission to both staff and visitors.

Staff work areas are designed to provide all employees with increased access to natural light. At the same time, electrical fixtures reduce lighting density by at least 25%. Furniture systems are from Herman Miller, a leader in sustainable production practices.
