The first building to receive the U.S. Green Building Council's Platinum rating for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED), CBF's Philip Merrill Environmental Center continues to win international acclaim as a model for energy efficiency, high performance, and water conservation. Take a look at the products and systems that earned us the title.
