New Jersey has its first LEED Platinum Industrial Building

It has taken 3 years, but Princetel’s 41,500 square foot repurposing project is finished and just received its LEED Platinum rating, making it the first LEED Platinum industrial building in New Jersey.

LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) is a certification program established by the US Green Building Council that requires buildings to satisfy prerequisites and earn points to achieve different levels of “green” certification. The program supports efforts to promote building practices that have sustainability, health of future occupants, renewable and clean energy use and long-term money savings at the forefront. There are 4 levels of certification: Certified, Silver, Gold & Platinum.

As of August 1, 2014 there are 934 LEED Registered Commercial projects and 343 LEED Certified Commercial projects in the state of New Jersey; Princeton is home to 6 of those. Before this project, Hamilton had 2.

Princetel was founded in Pennington in 2000 and manufactures fiber optic rotary joints. The company moved to Hamilton in 2011 and has doubled its staff since then. CEO Barry Zhang says that the company’s mission is to remain sustainable, and explained that their Hamilton building has turned into a “passion project.”
