Pittsburgh is fifth in the nation and
Pennsylvania is third for green buildings

As a region, green building in Pittsburgh started 15 years ago. At the same time, the non-profit United States Green Building Council (USGBC) was formed. Today, USGBC is an $80 million organization, 17,000-members strong, and working in 69 countries. In 2000, the USGBC launched its Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program, to establish uniform guidelines and certification system for “greening” new and existing buildings.


High on Pittsburgh’s list of early, notable LEED buildings is the David L. Lawrence Convention Center, for which Gateway Engineers provided surveying services. When the convention center opened its doors in 2003, Pittsburgh was number one in the country for green buildings.
