As members of both the national and the local Chicago chapter of the USGBC, GEOLOFTS is a supporter of the LEED rating system. While the LEED rating system is not a panacea, we believe it is a bold attempt to quantify a building’s efforts toward sustainability.
GEOLOFTS is striving to be LEED Certified Platinum based on the following components:
01. A comprehensive reuse of the building.
02. Recycling of the existing material content.
03. The use of biodegradable cleaning supplies and paints and finishes that have little or no VOC's (Volatile Organic Compounds).
04. And the implementation of the ultra-efficient, geothermal heating and cooling system, including individual tenant control, efficient window and lighting systems, a permeable parking surface, and the large native species landscape.
