First LEED-Certified Commercial Building in Maine—LEED-CS Certified

Portland, ME

 

PDT uses hand-drawn sketches to communicate the design intent to the client. This one is by Principal Alan Kuniholm.

The building backs up to Portland’s train and bus transportation hub and to the emerging development at Thompson’s Point.

The lobby is finished with green and recycled materials.

This building is, to our knowledge, the first LEED-certified commercial office building in Maine. Designed and built as a medical office building to rent at market rates, it represents a new generation of LEED construction at costs competitive with conventional construction.

Among its LEED credits are a heat-recovery system, reduced light pollution, water-efficient fixtures, a high-albedo roof, recycling of construction materials, use of certified lumber and materials with recycled content, bike storage and showers, and a tenant education program. PDT also designed the interior tenant fitup for Advanced Physical Therapy on the first floor.
