Pittsburgh embracing LEED-certified green building

David L. Lawrence Convention Center i n Pittsburgh, Pa.
In Pittsburgh, the construction of environmental-friendly buildings, designed for sustainability, is growing by leaps--and square footage.
Pittsburgh Business Times reports that, when it  compiled its first list of LEED-certified/green projects and buildings six years ago, the 25th-largest project on
the list was 12,000 square feet.

This year, in order to make the top 25, a project needed 200,000 square feet.
Business Times says this is not only evidence of the tremendous growth in the
number of projects seeking certification "but also the acceptance and leadership
roles taken by contractors and architects in the area and the Green Building Alliance."
LEED-ing to Green Pastures has lists of the top 15 LEED projects in 2008 and 2010.

Business Times
also provides a
slideshow of the top
25 LEED buildings in 2013
