The Christman Company's headquarters in Michigan, US, has become the first in the world to receive double-platinum Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification.

CEO Steve Roznowski said the company raised access floors to allow heating and ventilating through the floor, and enabled about 95% of the work spaces to have access to sunlight.

"The fresh air and the daylight in the building create vibrancy and an energy here that I think all of our people really feel and appreciate," Roznowski said.

LEED is an internationally recognised green building certification system that provides building owners a framework for implementing practical and measurable green building design, construction and maintenance solutions.
