In accordance with Metro’s LEED® Ordinance, Department of General Services is proud to have 21 LEED® certified buildings in its portfolio. This ordinance states that Metro buildings of 5,000 square feet or larger must be built or renovated to LEED® Silver or greater levels of certification.


LEED® is Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design and certification is granted by the U.S. Green Building Council. A LEED® facility must meet strict standards in the categories of sustainable sites, water efficiency, indoor air quality, energy & atmosphere, materials & resources, and innovation & design process. Future DGS facilities that are currently undergoing LEED® certification include:

  • Criminal Justice Center
  • Family Justice Center
  • Police Headquarters
