Kimball Office Showroom Earns LEED-CI Certified Rating at 215 Park Avenue

New York City’s latest LEED-CI rating is Kimball Office’s 12,000-square-foot showroom at 215 Park Avenue South.

Kimball Office has received New York City’s latest LEED for Commercial Interiors (“LEED-CI”) rating, copping the Certified designation from USGBC. Its 12,000-square-foot showroom at 215 Park Avenue South was designed in cooperation with TVS Interiors.

The showroom officially opened back in January and features a number of sustainable design features ranging from 75 percent recycled construction debris to low-VOC, local, and recycled-content materials, low-flow plumbing, and energy-efficient appliances. The space is also furnished with GREENGUARD-certified Kimball Office seating and systems furniture. The design of the showroom promotes natural light with an open floor plan, glass walls, and high ceilings.

Kimball Office is also using the space as part of an educational program designed to teach clients about sustainability. The showroom joins a number of other New York City office spaces that have earned the LEED-CI designation from USGBC; check out our LEED-CI archive below for details on those projects. The 215 Park Avenue South location is Kimball Office’s third LEED-certified space; the company’s corporate showroom in Indiana earned Gold and its Chicago facility received Silver.
