The Moscone Center, a major hub for tourists and hosting conventions in San Francisco, was praised for its environmentally friendly and energy efficient design, earning the LEED Gold certification. By implementing high performance and sustainable solutions in water and energy usage and material selection, the renovation team proudly considers the completed work an example for future buildings to follow.
San Francisco Mayor Edwin M. Lee today announced Moscone Center has received LEED® Gold certification, the first convention center on the West Coast to attain the green building honor. The LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) rating system was developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC).
“Moscone Center is a vital hub for our convention and tourism economy, and we are very proud to have the first convention center on the West Coast to earn LEED Gold for an existing building,” said Mayor Lee. “This is now our City’s largest municipally-owned green building. Receiving LEED Gold on the Moscone Center demonstrates once again that San Francisco is at the center of sustainability and innovation.”
