Hawaii Architecture project featuring BPS carpet earns LEED Platinum
July 28, 2011
Hawaii Architecture LLP recently received LEED Platinum certification for its Hau'oli Mau Loa Foundation renovation – a project featuring Bentley Prince Street’s City Planning carpet. Coordinated by sales representatives Brett Hart and Dana Jones, 506 square yards of Bentley Prince Street City Planning carpet with Contact Release backing was supplied for the project.
Hawaii Architecture worked to restore a space within the historic Dillingham Transportation Building for its client, the Hau'oli Mau Loa Foundation. The organization supports youth education and local environmental sustainability; therefore achieving LEED Platinum certification was a project goal from the outset. An equally important goal was preserving historical details within the space, while introducing sustainable, contemporary upgrades throughout.
“It’s important to recognize Hawaii Architecture for this wonderful accomplishment and celebrate any LEED project, especially LEED Platinum,” said Anthony Minite, president, Bentley Prince Street. “We live and breathe our Mission Zero promise every day at Bentley Prince Street, and it’s a pleasure to work with partners who appreciate that commitment and understand the dedication from all our associates who design, craft and market our beautiful products.”
City Planning carpet on Contact Release backing contains 12.5% post consumer recycled content, and 2.8% rapidly renewable content, according to the company. Additionally, the product is certified to the CRI Green Label Plus program and is third-party verified climate neutral, which contributes to a LEED Innovation in Design credit.
“In choosing carpet by Bentley Prince Street, we knew we would not only be supporting our pursuit of LEED Platinum certification, but we would also be supporting a company truly committed to a more sustainable built environment. Ray Anderson and his efforts with Bentley/Interface serve as great examples for all of our efforts at Hawaii Architecture LLP, and we are continually inspired by this commitment to quality and sustainability,” noted Phillip J. Camp, AIA, LEED AP and principal, Hawaii Architecture LLP.
