An abandoned facility in Johnston, RI, was recently rehabilitated into a U.S. Green Building Council Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold-certified office building.

The 305,600-square-foot building, constructed in 1973 and vacant since 2009, was purchased by Massachusetts-based property management company, Hobbs Brook Management, LLC, according to Facility Executive magazine.

Among the structure’s improvements are LED lights to reduce energy use, preserving the sites’ 153-acre natural environment, new plumbing fixtures for a 40 percent reduction in water use, bike racks for commuters, carpool parking spaces, and electric car charging stations.
