Gold Rush: ISC's Daytona HQs Secures Gold-Level LEED Certification

ISC Headquarters Uses 15-20% Less
Energy Than Similarly Sized Buildings

ISC Friday announced that its headquarters in Daytona Beach has secured Gold-level LEED certification from the U.S. Green Building Council. The 180,000-square-foot building was completed in '09. It was designed to meet LEED standards, but ISC execs spent a year working to secure the LEED certificate. The building uses 15-20% less energy than office buildings of the same size and has many environmentally friendly components like windows with special coatings that transmit less heat than clear glass. The building also was structured with 10-20% recycled material. ISC VP/Corporate Development Brian Wilson said it was fairly tough to get the certification, but it was always a goal. Wilson: "This fits in with our company's green initiatives. ISC and NASCAR are demonstrating that we're good corporate citizens" (Tripp Mickle, SportsBusiness Journal).

TESTING AT DAYTONA THIS WEEK: In Daytona Beach, Godwin Kelly reported Daytona Int'l Speedway is "prepared to host two days of NASCAR Sprint Cup Series testing on Wednesday and Thursday." After "decades of racing over a rough, bumpy surface, the blacktop has been certified pool table-top smooth by the North American Testing Co.," ISC's engineering arm. Lane Construction Project Manager John Rauer, whose company has overseen the repaving project at the track, said, "We were right on schedule. To do this volume of work in just six months (was busy)" (Daytona Beach NEWS-JOURNAL, 12/12).
