Cummings Properties has received Gold Level LEED pre-certification from the U.S. Green Building Council for its TradeCenter 128 office complex.

The complex is located in Woburn, Mass., and is a seven-story, 400,000-square-foot office building nearing completion. The building, which is visible from Route 128/95 is next to a new 139,000-square-foot Middlesex County Superior Court which openes at 200 TradeCenter 128 about March 17, 2008.

In addition to meeting the criteria for LEED certification, including site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection and indoor environmental quality, TradeCenter 128 includes features such as efficient HVAC and lighting systems, high-performance glass, water-saving fixtures, rainwater storage, construction materials made from high levels of recycled materials, construction waste recycling and building recycling programs.
