CMH Naval Main Exchange Project Receives LEED Gold Certification

Birmingham, Ala. (June 21, 2013) — CMH is proud to announce that its recently completed project, the Naval Main Exchange in Bethesda, Maryland, has received LEED Gold Certification. LEED is the nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction, and operation of high-performance green buildings. LEED buildings are evaluated based on fulfillment of certain sustainable design criteria, such as energy and water efficiency, indoor air quality improvement, better building material choices, site sustainability, and innovation in design.

The 150,000-square-foot, 2-story design-build project included a retail component and a parking deck. CMH not only fulfilled the green standards of excellence on this complex project, but did so while working within the constraints of an extremely tight site at the National Naval Medical Center. Alabama-based Brasfield & Gorrie joined forces with Michigan-based Walbridge Construction to serve as the contractor for the project.

“We are always environmentally conscious in our design choices,” said Firm Senior Vice President Michael O’Kelley, “but this project presented specific design challenges that allowed us to create new and innovative efficient-design solutions.”
