LEED® Platinum Certification Awarded to Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation Workplace

20-Oct-2010

The Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation has been awarded LEED® Platinum established by the U.S. Green Building Council and verified by the Green Building Certification Institute (GBCI). The platinum rating represents the highest level attainable for high-performance green interiors.

“I knew we could work with HPS from the moment I met the team. When we described our work and what we wanted from our new office space, they listened. HPS designed a building that exceeded our expectations. It helps us do our work better, it’s environmentally responsible, and it’s beautiful.” Ken Moore, Director of Evaluation & Technology, Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation

The Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation is committed to focused measureable solutions in three key areas: transformative scientific research, conserving critical global ecological systems, and improving the quality of life in the San Francisco Bay Region. Their new office space is a reflection of their values as well:
•Rehabilitating and improving the performance of an existing building.
•Maximizing access to views, natural light and fresh air for every occupant.
•Maximizing social inter-connectedness to support growth of the Foundation over time.

The interior architecture supports the Foundation’s mission, “Creating positive outcomes for future generations.”

“Buildings are a prime example of how human systems integrate with natural systems,” said Rick Fedrizzi, President, CEO & Founding Chair, U.S. Green Building Council. “The Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation project efficiently uses our natural resources and makes an immediate, positive impact on our planet.”
