LEED Gold for New Construction
United Way Worldwide (UWW) – Mary M. Gates Center for Learning, recently achieved LEED Gold Certification for New Construction, granted by the USGBC. UWW resides in a 120,000 square foot building on the Potomac River in Alexandria, VA. Built in 1982 and wholly owned by UWW, the building has not undergone any significant décor or infrastructure updates in its lifetime. This project comprises the conversion of an out-of-date broadcast studio and tape storage facility (located within a 30,000 square foot annex) into the Mary M. Gates Learning Center, which serves communities both locally and globally.
