GRN Vision was retained by EHB Companies as the LEED Consultant and Sustainability Strategist for the first stand-alone courthouse for the Nevada Supreme Court located in downtown Las Vegas, Nevada. The building was designed to achieve Gold certification under the US Green Building Council LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) rating system. The building will house chambers for Nevada Supreme Court justices as well as a 3-member Appeals Court which was approved by voters in 2014. The building also features a 72-seat courtroom where oral arguments will be conducted.
The courthouse will be equipped with cutting edge technology for communication, security and energy conservation systems. Some of the sustainable features include low-E windows and skylights, high efficiency VRF mechanical units, low albedo roofing, and durable, sustainable materials.
