Jennette’s Pier goes platinum
The N.C. Department of Environment and Natural Resources’ Aquariums Division celebrated a milestone achievement Thursday at Jennette’s Pier in Nags Head.
That’s when the facility officially received a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design platinum designation from the U.S. Green Building Council.
Department of Environment and Natural Resources Secretary Dee Freeman was presented a plaque to hang in the lobby of the 16,000 square foot pier house by Laura Klauke, Executive Director of the Triangle chapter of the U.S. Green Building Council.
Jennette’s Pier earned the designation by using proven green building practices and materials during construction and for its inclusion of sustainable systems such as wind turbines, reclaimed water utilization and geothermal heating and cooling.
Jennette’s is one of only two state facilities to reach the LEED platinum level.
