Tenaris’s Bay City plant in Texas has received Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification – the first pipe manufacturing facility in the United States to achieve this designation.

Kirksey is proud to have provided LEED certification services for this Tenaris facility. It was a ten-year process to document and certify the six-building campus totaling over 1 million square feet. Achieving LEED certification for an industrial process and facility is uncommon. The United States Green Building Council (USGBC), a leader in green building, has recorded less than 10 LEED-certified industrial projects in the States since 2010, with Tenaris’s Bay City mill the newest to join these ranks.

In addition to LEED documentation and certification management, Kirksey provided energy modeling services and made site visits to help verify the sustainability goals were being implemented through design and construction.
