2014 Green Business Awards winner: Greensource Cincinnati

ChuckLohreGreensource CINCINNATI, LEED for New Construction v2.2

It had once been the home of a Cincinnati mayor, then an American Legion hall and finally, a lighting store. Housh completely renovated the building using the latest energy-efficient materials and heating and air systems. He added a green roof, high-performance insulation, a rainwater harvesting system and a gray water system to reuse waste water.

In 2013, the project was awarded LEED Platinum certification by the U.S. Green Building Council, the first historic downtown building to receive that honor. It also won an award for Local Preservation Excellence from the Cincinnati Preservation Association.

greensource Cincinnati LEED® Platinum Presentation Aug 21

ChuckLohreGreensource CINCINNATI

July 8, 2013, Cincinnati, OH – greensource Cincinnati announced today that it has been awarded LEED® Platinum established by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) and verified by the Green Building Certification Institute. LEED is the nation’s preeminent program for the design, construction and operation of high performance green buildings.

In 2008, company president Ez Housh had the idea to purchase an old building in downtown Cincinnati, renovate it to LEED Platinum standards for energy-efficiency, and give people a place where they could go to see “green” technology in action. Thus greensource Cincinnati was born. What began as an idea to use the first floor of the building as a “showroom” quickly blossomed into a robust technology showcase on all 4 floors. Manufacturers and technology partners heard about the concept and the most viable renewable technologies were hand-selected for space in the building.
