Setting the BarSeptember 2012

The State Employees Retirement System of Ohio (SERS) is not only protecting and growing the retirement contribution of its more than 125,000 State Employees Retirement System of Ohioactive members and 67,000 benefit recipients, but it's also making it a priority to enhance the environmental quality for its building occupants.

Located in Columbus, Ohio, the SERS facility is seeking LEED: EB (Existing Building: Operations & Maintenance). According to the U.S. Green Building Council, LEED: EB measures operations, improvements and maintenance with the goal of maximizing operational efficiency, while minimizing environmental impacts.

"We're excited to be supporting SERS in its LEED initiative," says Reed Tarkington, Vice President of Four Seasons Environmental, Inc. "The SERS leaders are undertaking a great initiative, not only improving the building environment for its occupants, but also setting the bar for state facilities across Ohio."
