Perkins+Will is a powerhouse in the green architectural design industry. The firm recently topped 150 LEED certifications, including 20 facilities that reached the highest level certification possible, LEED Platinum. The 150th certification was awarded to the Perkins+Will designed Gwinnett Medical Center Strickland Heart Center in Duluth, Georgia.
While 150 LEED certifications is a fantastic milestone, Perkins+Will has already reached 155 LEED certified designs and that figure is only going to continue to grow.

"It's at the heart of everything we do, and LEED certification is just one marker of our commitment. We strive to go beyond what's currently accepted to create buildings that move the marker of what's considered sustainable forward."
