Broadstone Lincoln Earns LEED-H Platinum Certification
Alliance is excited to announce that Broadstone Lincoln in Scottsdale has been awarded the LEED-H Platinum Certification. This is Alliance’s second development to achieve this level of endorsement. To support the certification, Broadstone Lincoln implemented a range of measures to track energy efficiency, water conservation and sustainable operations. Property-wide improvements included utilizing recycled building materials and high-efficiency mechanical systems, installing water-saving fixtures and irrigation systems, and implementing environmentally-conscious landscaping practices, among other measures. The community’s prime location within walking distance of public transportation and popular retail venues also supports its sustainable living mindset.
LEED certified buildings save money and resources and have a positive impact on the health of occupants while promoting clean, renewable energy. The certification could set a new standard for a demographic of renters nationwide. Ian Swiergol, Alliance’s Managing Director of Development for the Southwest region, says pursuing certification is another level of oversight designed for a sustainable future that renters will eventually demand.
“For us it really was a black and white decision. We raised the bar with the finishes and amenities, so we decided to raise the bar through the certification process and build a sustainable product.”
