CMTA’s Louisville office building is the right fit for the firm’s headquarters.

CMTA built its first office building in 2009 with two goals in mind: significantly reduce energy use and create a learning lab environment to test new technologies for high performance buildings. The building was the first LEED Gold office building in Louisville and received a perfect ENERGY STAR rating of 100.

Zero Energy

They said it couldn’t be done.

The first Zero Energy School in the U.S. opened in 2010 in in Warren County, Kentucky. Until Richardsville Elementary opened most K-12 Zero Energy projects were small and didn’t include large conditioned spaces like a gymnasium, media center and cafeteria. This Fall 2012 issue of High Performing Buildings documents this remarkable achievement.
