ENC’s LEED Platinum Green Building
Built to Inspire
LEED, or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, certification is a third-party rating system led by the U.S. Green Building Council. The ENC is the first building in Orange County to receive LEED Platinum certification, the highest level of certification possible. LEED-certified buildings have smaller development footprints, are healthier environments for occupants, and serve as stewards in environmental and social responsibility.
The ENC has been teaching and growing within our community for over 35 years. Having a building of our own has been a dream since our inception and we can finally say that our dream has come true. Our 8,500 square-foot sustainable learning center provides vital classroom and educational spaces and serves as an educational tool itself. We hope that our building can show the benefits of environmentally-conscious design and teach our visitors how to implement sustainable features in their homes and businesses. Most importantly, we hope the center will inspire our visitors to make personal investments in the protection of the environment.
