Optima™ for LEED-NC Certification
In recent years, Envirotrol expanded our services to include IEQ assessment and remediation. As part of that expansion, the company purchased an Optima system and used it to offer complimentary IEQ testing to existing
Scott Goller, General Manager of Envirotrol, soon recognized that it would be ideal for use in LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) verification. Specifically, Optima's automated testing fulfills the IEQ requirement to
establish a building baseline post construction but prior to occupancy.
After using it successfully to test two renovation projects at Duke University, Scott was asked to develop a proposal
to test a new 400,000 square foot facility. Known as the Center for Interdisciplinary Engineering, Medicine and Applied Science (CIEMAS), this project recently earned a LEED NC V2.0 Silver certification.
