Aviation Authority achieves three LEED certifications in 2018-19


The Greater Orlando Aviation Authority (GOAA) has earned its third Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification. LEED certifications are awarded by the US Green Building Council after a comprehensive review. Detailed environmental and human health criteria for building design, construction, maintenance, and operation must be achieved.

The Westfield Fire Rescue Station and the South Automated People Mover/Intermodal Terminal Facility (APM/ITF) at Orlando International Airport (MCO) were awarded LEED certification in 2018.

GOAA Maintenance Administration

GOAA’s most recent LEED certification was awarded in April 2019 for the Maintenance Administration Building. Upgrades to Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) systems, lighting, and windows have reduced the building’s energy consumption 20% since 2015. Low-flow faucets and fixtures reduced water consumption by 10% in the first three months of operation. Recycling and reuse programs have diverted 40% building waste that otherwise would have gone to a landfill.
