Alstom invests in LEED

Paris, France-based Alstom will invest an additional $20 million in its new Chattanooga facility, in part to achieve Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design certification.

The Chattanooga Times Free Press reports that the company is installing dozens of skylights, a system to capture rainwater run-off for irrigation and using 2-inch thick insulated siding in its bid to received the LEED Gold designation.

Old concrete building slabs are also being recycled into crushed concrete, which is used as road foundation on the site.
