A 45,000-SF office building in Bentonville has been awarded LEED Gold certification, one of the highest awards given by the U.S. Green Building Council.

According to a news release, the headquarters for national architectural and engineering firm Harrison French & Associates Ltd., located at 1705 S. Walton Blvd. in Bentonville, received the designation.

Gold is the second-highest rating a building can earn after platinum.

HFA moved into the refurbished building in December 2013.

Among the green highlights are:

• The space was designed using energy-efficient lighting and HVAC, water-efficient fixtures and landscaping, as well as eco-friendly materials and furnishings.

• Careful equipment and appliance selection.

• HFA diverted 83 percent of construction waste by separating and recycling or reusing on site.

• The addition of the south exterior windows achieved 1 point in the certification process, and also provides daylight and views of an adjacent park. 

HFA is licensed in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.
