The Duke Energy Center has earned platinum-level LEED certification under the sustainable standards established by the U.S. Green Building Council. (…)

Work began in 2006 on the uptown tower, which was originally designed for LEED Gold, the third-highest of four levels. (BofA’s new uptown office tower adjacent to The Ritz-Carlton, Charlotte is also chasing gold level.)

We originally aimed for gold, but then realized we could meet the platinum standard,’ Wells Fargo spokeswoman Alex Ball says.”

Hooray for VOLTron!
