The Siemens Building Technologies Division’s Beltsville, Md. branch office was recently awarded LEED for Existing Buildings: Operations & Maintenance certification by the USGBC.

The Beltsville facility, which also earned the ENERGY STAR Label for energy performance, implemented a range of energy efficiency, water conservation and sustainable operations measures as part of the certification process. As a result, the building is 27% more energy efficient than similar buildings, uses 21% less water, and produces nearly 600 fewer  metric tons of CO2 emissions. The facility is not only more efficient with lower utility expenses, it also meets the rigorous operations and maintenance requirements of LEED—which means that over the life of the facility it will be less costly to operate.
