CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) -- The corporate flight center terminal at Chattanooga Airport has been LEED platinum certified.
The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design certification is the best possible.
Almost 4,000 solar panels were installed just south of the terminal. Ninety-five percent of all construction waste was recycled. Landscaping throughout the campus includes indigenous plants requiring no water for hydration.
Chattanooga Mayor Ron Littlefield said projects such as this help the city fulfill its brand promise of being a green community.
Dan Jacobson, chairman of the Chattanooga Metropolitan Airport Authority, said in a news release that sustainability is a civic duty.
