Environetics, a full-service interior architectural design, LEED Consulting and space-planning firm and Cubellis, a national architectural, engineering, and interior design firm,with offices nationwide, announced that the Timberland Apparel's 12,945-square-foot interior showroom renovation project,a collaborative effort on the part of the two firms, achieved LEED CI version 2.0 Certification from the U.S. Green Building Council.

"Timberland is committed to reducing global warming and preserving the outdoor environment through the increasing use of renewable energy, recycled and reusable materials, and by decreasing waste and use of chemicals," said Environetics' Director, Sustainable Interiors Department, Sandra Goda Dino, LEED AP. "The exceptional design concept created by Cubellis, provided an excellent foundation on which to build a sustainable project. Working together, the teams were able to unmask hidden opportunities and make recommendations without sacrificing the astuteness of the design approach."

"Our mission was clear: Timberland was redefining their image and the Cubellis team was on board to help them achieve that goal," said David Rush, AIA, Principal, Workplace Solutions at Cubellis. "Timberland's inherent commitment to sustainable design was a driving force in the project approach, and it became a common thread that was woven into every piece of their new, functional, 21st century urban chic image! We effectively married the legacy of Timberland with the launch of their new image, positioning the brand for continued success -- mission accomplished!"

Timberland's New York City project served as a test site to determine the viability of rolling out future office projects across the company in the same manner to help achieve the company's goal of becoming carbon neutral, while preserving Timberland's goals and reflecting its values. Using LEED Certification as a guideline for future building could help meet these goals and create a model of sustainability for the renovation of existing space. Cubellis and Environetics worked with the design team to complete research to support sustainable design decisions, identify ways to encourage new connections with employees, vendors and the greater community and uncover innovation opportunities.
