An upscale Tahoe Vista, California, restaurant, Wild Goose, recently became the first restaurant to receive certification from the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED® rating system for commercial interiors (LEED-CI). CCS Architecture, of San Francisco, remodeled the 10,000 ft2 (930 m2) restaurant for East West Partners. Among Wild Goose’s environmental features are recycled-content materials, including cotton insulation and steel; certified and reclaimed wood; paints and stains with low emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs); water-conserving fixtures; and an environmental cleaning policy.
