LEED Profiles



Builder: Shook Building Systems Architect: J.R. Miller & Associates

Our Hangar 25 project was the first LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) Platinum-rated aviation maintenance hangar to receive the U.S. Green Building Council’s highest rating. Hangar 25 is one of the most sustainable, if not the most sustainable, MRO facilities in the world.


How did our CBC Building obtain its LEED rating?

Hangar 25’s platinum rating was achieved through a variety of sustainable design features

Sustainable Sites:sustainable design

  • Exterior lighting power density 54% lower than ASHRAE 90.1
  • Standard Water Efficiency


Water Efficiency:

  • 61% less indoor water use than a code-compliant building
  • 51% less landscape water use than a typical building


Materials and Resources:code-compliant building

  • 77% of the Construction/Demolition waste was recycled
  • 35% of the value of the construction materials came from recycled content materials
  • 48% of the construction materials were locally harvested and manufactured


Indoor Environmental Quality:

  • Over 95% of regularly occupied spaces were day lit
  • Achieved 14 of 15 IEQ points


PV Array and Energy:

  • Building will produce 110% of its total energy needs with on-site solar
  • Owner will purchase RECs for 70% of buildings hypothetical grid electricity demand
  • Building will produce over 400,000 kWh per year of clean, distributed renewable energy
  • Airplane process loads will be powered by solar charging carts, avoiding jet fuel consumption and improving air quality


Other Notable Features:

  • Sustainable polished concrete floor lacking toxic epoxy finish
  • State of the Art Hi-Fog fire suppression system using a reduced amount of water to suppress fire, rather than a toxic foam system or water suppression system using considerable amounts of water
  • (7) Seven “Big Ass Fans” for cooling the building in warm weather and circulating warm air in cooler temperatures
