Boca Raton, FL (March 26, 2015)–Broken Sound Club — a 5-Star Platinum Club of America — is pleased to announce that its Moonstone Spa and Fitness Center has been awarded LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Certification from the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) for its 2013 total transformation and reorientation at the Club’s 38,000-square-foot Spa and Fitness Center. Developed by the USGBC, LEED® Green Building Rating System is the internationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction and operation of high-performance green buildings.
To achieve a high standard of excellence in green building Broken Sound Club collaborated with an award-winning, credentialed team throughout the design, construction and operation development phases of the $7 million transformation and expansion of the spa and fitness center. Supervised by Broken Sound Club leadership, the team included Peacock + Lewis Architects, RGD & Associates (Engineers), Weitz Construction, Land Design South, Caulfield & Wheeler, The Spinnaker Group and American Leisure.
“I am convinced that Clubs can be at the front of the push for sustainability and set an example for other communities and businesses,” stated John Crean CCE, General Manager and Chief Operating Officer at Broken Sound Club that also boasts two GEO CertifiedTM and Audubon Sanctuary Certified signature golf courses. “Our goal at Broken Sound Club — from our two clubhouses and dining facilities to our golf courses and recreational facilities — has always been to reduce the adverse impact on our surroundings and make a significant difference. Earning LEED Certification for our Moonstone Spa and Fitness Center validates that we take sustainability seriously and are steadfast in our mission.”
LEED Certification is the most popular and widely used green building rating system globally. It provides independent third-party verification that a building, home or community was designed and built using strategies aimed at achieving high performance in key areas of human and environmental health: Sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection and indoor environmental quality.
