The 1,336-square-foot, three-bedroom, two-bath cabin is one of only 12 projects in the state to earn Platinum certification, the story stated.
Rusty Gregory, CEO of Mammoth Mountain, said: "Constructing the Tamarack cabin to LEED-Platinum standards is one of many important steps that Mammoth Mountain is taking to fulfill our commitment to the environment. As one of only a dozen Platinum certified projects in California, we’re proud to be taking a leading role in what can be accomplished with sustainable building practices."
Sustainable aspects of the cabin include: Environmentally friendly hardwood flooring, recycled carpeting and decking material, pest-resistant siding, recycled drywall and energy efficient windows, the story noted.
The USGBC awards LEED certification based on pre-specified features in categories such as innovation and design process, location and linkages, sustainable sites, water efficiency, energy and atmosphere, materials and resources and indoor environmental quality, the story added.
