GREEN BUILDINGS

 Green Buildings Banner

Facility construction, operation, maintenance and demolition are not only fiscally intensive. These practices also create numerous environmental impacts to include land disturbance, solid waste generation, air quality concerns and resource depletion.

Fort Bragg incorporates high performance, sustainable principles and sound technologies into the construction, renovation and maintenance of new and existing facilities to achieve a safe, efficient, healthy and productive environment. Projects support the Fort Bragg Sustainable Design and Development Program and the United States Green Building Council Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) standards for construction. Our facilities are constructed to the Army minimum standard for LEED Silver certifiable structures.
