Bishop Ranch Business Park in San Ramon, CA, gets 37 LEED certifications all at once

Calif. Office Park Secures Three Dozen LEED Certs

by Randy Woods

The merits of the LEED certification program will continue as critics say the sustainability standards are too easy to achieve and don’t have enough of an impact on the environment. But when you have 37 office buildings representing 6 million square feet of office space earning the U.S. Green Building Council’s (USGBC) seal of approval all at once, it’s at least worth a nod of recognition.

The Bishop Ranch Business Park, located near San Ramon, Calif., is home to 600 businesses, with more than 30,000 employees on a 585-acre plot of land.  Taken as one unit, the 37 office buildings that first began construction in the late 1970s represent more than 10 percent of all the new LEED-certified space designated by the USGBC in California during all of 2012.
