The Green Building Certification Institute (GBCI) has certified the 10,000th LEED commercial project. GBCI administers the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED building certification program for commercial projects seeking third-party verification of compliance.

The Live Oak Family Resource Center, a community center in Santa Cruz, Calif., is the milestone project earning the 10,000th LEED certification. The center was awarded LEED Platinum by GBCI.

“It seems an appropriate reflection of USGBC’s mission of green buildings for everyone within a generation that a LEED Platinum community center providing support services to local families would earn this special distinction,” said Peter Templeton, president, GBCI.
