  • U.S. Green Building Council to Lead Tour of the Port of Long Beach’s First LEED Gold Certified Building – Pier G Marine Terminal Operations project, Built by FTR.

    FTR International Inc. is proud that the United States Green Building Council’s Los Angeles Chapter is providing its members, as well as the general public, access to this signature FTR project, a LEED milestone for the Port of Long Beach. The tour will take place on December 6th and will highlight how this project exceeded its original design intent of LEED Silver to achieve LEED Gold. Many factors contributed to this level upgrade including FTR’s diligence in diverted 97% of Construction waste from landfills.

    This state-of-the-art facility is the second sustainable project FTR has completed for the Port, including the POLB’s first LEED project, the LEED Silver, Security Command and Control Center. The new Pier G Operations project is a welcome addition to FTR’s industry leading list of completed sustainable projects in Southern California as we expand on our continuing commitment to completing LEED Certified, Silver, Gold and Platinum facilities for many of our regions most prominent owners and agencies.
