National Geographic Society Upgrades Facilities with LEED-EB
The National Geographic Society’s (NGS) Headquarters, an 835,000 ft2 (77,600 m2) complex of buildings in Washington, D.C., was recognized at Greenbuild with a Silver rating under the LEED-EB pilot program.
The oldest building in the complex dates from 1902, with a major addition in the early 1940s. As the Society grew, it expanded with the “17th Street Building” designed by Edward Durell Stone, which opened in 1963, and then the “M Street Building,” completed in 1984.
