Join us on a private guided tour of the Vanderbilt Financial Group headquarters- the first LEED Platinum office building on Long Island!

Vanderbilt Financial Group will be hosting a USGBC-LI sponsored LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) presentation followed by private tours of the building in honor of Earth Day on April 20th from 6pm to 8pm. Vanderbilt’s headquarters is located in Woodbury and achieved LEED Platinum status, making it the first office building to do so on Long Island.  Please join us in acknowledging and congratulating the architects, contractors, designers, and suppliers who helped to create our beautiful and environmentally responsible building. This tour is a wonderful opportunity for green building advocates to embrace and understand LEED construction and increase their awareness of the most current and effective sustainable practices.

LEED certification is achieved after rigorous evaluations from the USGBC based on several areas that address sustainability issues through all phases of development.  This project sets an example of environmental responsibility for the entire community. LEED is changing the way we think about how buildings and communities are planned, constructed, maintained and operated.

*Attendees are eligible to earn 1 GBCI CEU Credit*
