Weather Channel’s Atlanta Broadcast Facility Receives LEED Gold
The Weather Channel has received Gold LEED-New Construction certification for its new HD broadcast facility in Atlanta, G.A., Contract Magazine reports.
The 12,500 square-foot facility was designed by Vocon Architecture. The building includes features such as using heat from studio lights to warm the building, and a weather sensitive irrigation system that stores rainwater to supply the landscape irrigation system.
The company will also buy renewable energy credits from Renewable Choice Energy to offset 35 percent of the electricity use in the new studio over the next two years.
In February, the company launched a campaign, Help Make Every Day Earth Day, which encouraged green viewers to answer the question, “What are you doing to help save the planet?”
