IDI, a national industrial real estate developer consistently ranked in the top five industrial developers in the United States, recently received silver certification from the U.S. Green Building Council for its 502,854-square-foot speculative building in Tradeport East Business Center.
The designation means the building has met the group’s green building standards.
“We are extremely pleased building A in Tradeport East has received silver LEED certification,” said Sean Fitzsimmons, vice president of national business development for IDI.  “At IDI, we are unwavering in our commitment to reduce the environmental footprint of the company and to lead the industry by actively encouraging and implementing sustainable measures throughout all aspects of our organization.”
IDI’s building incorporates a host of energy-saving and environmentally responsible features, including white roofing that helps cut energy consumption, skylights that reduce the need for artificial light and purple pipe that allows for the re-use of treated wastewater for irrigation and other non-potable uses.  
“The Liberty County Development Authority applauds IDI for being good stewards to the environment by designing and constructing building A in Tradeport East to be green,” said Ron Tolley, chief executive officer of the LCDA. “We believe the LEED certified building in addition to the water re-use lines we installed in Tradeport East demonstrate how committed both IDI and the LCDA are to making the park as environmentally friendly as possible.”
