Mashburn Construction and the Lexington Richland Alcohol and Drug Abuse Council (LRADAC) are pleased to announce the LRADAC facility in Richland County has achieved LEED Silver certification by the U.S. Green Building Council. The 60,079 square foot building houses 80 employees and consolidates the company’s services in Richland County into one administrative and service center. As stated on the USGBC (U.S. Green Building Council) website, “LEED certification provides independent, third-party verification that a building project is environmentally responsible, profitable and a healthy place to live and work.”
“We are honored to achieve this certification,” said Debbie Francis, President and CEO of LRADAC. “Knowing that our clients, staff and visitors are in a healthy facility that is environmentally friendly to our community further exemplifies our purpose of ‘Improving Lives, Improving Communities.’”
Additionally, on September 8th, LRADAC will hold a ceremony for the dedication of its Richland County facility. At the event, individuals who helped make the new facility possible will be honored for their work. The event will take place from 4:30pm – 6pm in LRADAC’s Education Center located on 2711 Colonial Drive, Columbia, SC 29203.
