DHL’s Doral building, which is owned by DCT Industrial, has earned the
LEED Commercial Interiors gold certification from the U.S. Green
Buildings Council. “We are extremely proud to be the first DHL
LEED-gold-certified building in the U.S.,” said Todd Watson, vice
president and regional market representative with DCT Industrial. “Our
savings, as well as our ability to protect one of our most valued assets
— our employees — proves our green investment has paid off.” The
building has been equipped with only Energy Star equipment, and 95
percent of the building was fitted with occupancy sensors. The
building’s furniture is also Greenguard certified. [SFBJ]
