New Cherry Point Building Nabs Top Energy Rating

A new building at Cherry Point for engineers and software designers gets a top energy efficiency rating.

Officials with Haskell Construction said Thursday the U.S. Green Building Council has given the Fleet Readiness Center East's new engineering support building its gold certification.

The building uses solar panels to produce 25 percent of its energy needs and has special windows and light panels that reflect light in order to cut electricity use.

The building consolidates about 200 engineers and workers who support a wide variety of Marine Corps aircraft such as the V-22 tilt rotor, the AV-8 Harrier jet and C-130 transports and opened in December.
