The renovations are designed by the nationally recognized, integrated architecture, engineering, and technology design firm Westlake Reed Leskosky of Cleveland, Ohio, and recently recognized with an AIA Ohio 2014 Honor Award. The new workplace is a thoroughly modern space, respectful of the history and tradition of the Cleveland Browns yet forging a progressive identity for the team, via bold imagery, messaging, team branding and colors.

USGBC joins Sustainable Disaster Response Council

leed leadership in energy and environmental design green buildingThe Sustainable Disaster Response Council (SDRC) and  the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) have joined forces to promote sustainability in disaster response and property restoration – helping American businesses and communities turn every loss into smart investments in a stronger, safer, healthier and environmentally responsible future.

As creator of the LEED standard and voice of a booming green building sector that now outpaces overall U.S. construction growth,  USGBC brings invaluable expertise to a growing body of SDRC members that will include disaster response and property restoration contractors, product manufacturers, insurers, property owners and managers, the architecture, engineering and construction community and experts from industry trades, NGOs, academia and government.

“Focusing on disaster response is a natural evolution for the green building movement,” said Mahesh Ramanujam, USGBC President & CEO. “Owners of more than 15 billion square feet of building space worldwide already use LEED to demonstrate how buildings can dramatically reduce their energy and water consumption – but we also know LEED certified projects have diverted more than 80 million tons of construction and demolition waste from landfills, and that’s just one example of how green buildings can directly contribute to sustainable disaster response and property restoration.”

SDRC’s first order of business will be to develop a roadmap that ties together best practices for construction & demolition waste, land-use, energy, water, materials, and other aspects of rebuilding and restoring properties and infrastructure in a more sustainable way.  The council will then develop standards that incorporate and build upon existing programs like LEED and serve as the basis to certify disaster response projects and accredit associated professionals.

“Thirteen U.S. weather events in 2016 each caused losses in excess of $1 billion – a reminder that increasingly frequent and severe storms, together with every day localized fire and water damage, carry a big price tag for insurers, property owners and governments,” said SDRC President Stephen Bushnell, himself a 40-year veteran of the insurance industry.  “We’re excited to have USGBC help us think about how to turn these losses into greener, healthier and more resilient buildings – and we can learn a lot from USGBC’s experience developing LEED.”
