SALT LAKE CITY — June 19, 2018 — Wood Partners, a leader in real estate development and construction, has secured the LEED Platinum certification for the Alta Gateway Station located at 505 West 100 South Salt Lake City, UT 84101. This is the first LEED Platinum certification for a multifamily apartment building in Utah.
The LEED green building rating system, developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), is the foremost program for buildings, homes and communities that are designed, constructed, maintained and operated for improved environmental and human health performance. The LEED Platinum certification is the highest rated certification for recognizing best-in-class building strategies and practices in green building. The Alta Gateway Station was awarded the LEED Platinum certification due to the building’s green design and the management team’s implementation of practical and measurable strategies and solutions. These efforts are aimed at achieving efficiency in power consumption, water usage, materials and resources and indoor environment quality.
“This LEED Platinum certification establishes Alta Gateway Station as a showcase example of efficient design and sustainability,” said Tim McEntee, Development Director for Wood Partners. “Not only does this demonstrate Wood Partners’ leadership in the building industry in Utah, but it also fortifies our commitment to a better environment in Utah. Residents and visitors to this property will experience how, these ground-breaking units are noticeably different from all others.

We are proud of the fact that Alta Gateway Station achieved LEED Platinum certification and that it is the first apartment building in the state of Utah to do so. It is truly the result of a tremendous team effort.”
