The Molasky Center was mentioned in the Las Vegas Review-Journal article entitled: “Las Vegas-area companies go green”.
The article featured several local businesses here in Vegas who are leading the way in ‘going green’. The Molasky Corporate Center was the first downtown office building to receive LEED Gold Certified Class-A certification.
Here is an excerpt featuring the Molasky Corporate Center:
“Even while the Molasky Corporate Center in downtown Las Vegas was being built, paints free of volatile organic compounds, or VOCs, were used on the walls, and the flooring was attached with nontoxic water-based glues, according to Richard Worthington, president and chief operating officer.
The building’s insulation is made of shredded blue jeans, 98 percent of the steel used in the project is recycled, and water from the heating and cooling system is reused for the landscaping.
The Molasky Group of Companies spent about $4.5 million more than what would normally be required in a typical construction project “to take a leadership position in our industry, in our community, and to demonstrate to others that you can raise the bar and the threshold for sustainable development in Southern Nevada,” Worthington said.
It seems to have worked. The center’s largest tenant is the Southern Nevada Water Authority and the 285,000-square-foot building, 100 N. City Parkway, is the first downtown office building to receive a LEED Gold Class-A certification.
Since opening the center in 2007, its first LEED building, five of Molasky Group’s most recent projects have also been constructed to meet LEED Gold certification.”
