LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is a well recognized, prestigious designation for the design, construction and operation of sustainable buildings. Bath and Body Works is the first Limited Brands building to earn LEED certification.
The Bath and Body Works facility was constructed in 1997 and has 150,991 square feet of office space and 547,010 square feet of distribution warehouse space. Limited Brands has implemented a number of green design and operating features, including storm-water management, reduced site disturbance, light pollution reduction, water and plumbing efficiency, ozone protection, energy efficiency, emissions reduction, sustainable purchasing, solid waste management (recycling), indoor air quality and green cleaning.
To earn the Silver designation, Limited Brands had to detail its efforts in conserving energy and water, developing and implementing programs to reduce waste to landfills, facilitating sustainable purchasing and improving indoor environmental quality.
“We are honored to have achieved the LEED Silver EB O&M designation and want to acknowledge and express our appreciation for the efforts of all who participated in this rigorous endeavor,” says Nathaniel Beegle, LEED AP and project manager for Limited Brands.
