On November 8, 2018, our new fire station was honored by the U.S. Green Building Council of West Michigan as the highest rated LEED Gold commercial building in 2018. This rating is based on high-performing design and energy-efficient features that will provide a quick return on investment. Cheri Holman, Executive Director of the U.S. Green Building council of West Michigan stated "Third party verification programs like LEED ensure the community that construction was intentional to consider the environmental and economic impacts of its footprint and beyond".
John Nash said "we are honored to receive this award. The Spring Lake Township Board of Trustees and our fire fighters were very committed to designing and building the best possible fire station for now and into the next fifty years - sustainability is one of Spring Lake Township's primary objectives".
