Fullmer Construction's Global Access Lot 1 Wins LEED Gold Certification as the World's Largest 'Green' Speculative Industrial Building in the World

ONTARIO, CA--(Marketwire - November 19, 2009) - Fullmer Construction's Global Access Lot 1 in Victorville, California, receives LEED Gold certification from the United States Green Building Council.

As gold as the California Mountains, Fullmer Construction's Global Access Lot 1, the massive 1,000,000 square foot speculative industrial distribution facility, received a LEED Gold certification. This LEED Gold certification qualifies the facility as the largest speculative 'green' industrial facility in the world and the first ever LEED certified project of any kind in Southern California's High Desert region.

"Receiving our LEED Gold certification is an honor and another milestone in the progression of sustainable industrial development at Southern California Logistics Centre. We will continue to pursue LEED certification on new development to offer tenants and the community top quality, sustainable buildings that provide tenants with health and safety benefits and direct cost savings," said Brian Parno, vice president with Stirling Capital Investments, master developer of Southern California Logistics Centre.

The now officially 'Green' building will consume roughly 49 percent less energy than a comparable baseline facility netting tenants about $250,000 a year in energy cost savings. Some of the building's sustainable features include reduced-flow, electronic valve restroom fixtures and drought-tolerant landscaping helping the facility curb indoor water waste by about 40 percent and outdoor water waste by over 70 percent. Energy-saving strategies include three percent skylights with daylight harvesting, improved building envelope and energy efficient HVAC and lighting equipment.

"We are very proud of the LEED Gold certification for Global Access Lot 1. It's a significant accomplishment and validates all the hard work everyone put into the project," expresses Fullmer Construction's Chief Financial Officer Jim Fullmer. "We couldn't be more pleased about the project, the reduced emissions and bottom line savings for our clients and their clients."
