When Pat Lobb Toyota of McKinney, Texas opened its doors last week, it became the first automotive dealership in the U.S. to become LEED-certified assuring the latest in environmental sustainability.
The LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Green Building Rating System is administered by the U.S. Green Building Council, a Washington-based nonprofit coalition, and was created to implement a standard in minimizing negative affects on the environment while improving occupant well-being.

Much of the dealership was created with recycled materials and designed with energy and resource saving systems. One such example is the use a cistern to capture and conserve water for the car wash.

The dealership was designed by the Gensler architectural firm and built by Turner Construction Company.
