Texas Toyota dealership LEEDs the way in sustainability

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.
