We also embrace sustainable design for our own facilities, as has been recognized by LEED certification of our recently-completed plant renovation and expansion in Cranston, RI.
The project was a 60,000 sq. ft. single-story warehouse addition which includes facilities for the manufacturing plant's coolant and metal chip recycling. The project earned points in all major areas of the U.S. Green Building Council LEED rating system, which includes: sustainable design, water efficiency, energy and atmosphere, materials and resources, indoor air quality and innovation and design.
Taco President and CEO John White Jr. marked the occasion with a LEED certificate ceremony in the new facility on Earth Day, attended by Taco employees and special guests including Rhode Island Governor Don Carcieri.
