Jacobs Engineering Group has announced that the Intesa Sanpaolo Tower in Turin, Italy, has been given Platinum LEED certification by the U.S Green Building Council.

The LEED system evaluates environmental performance over a building’s life cycle, providing a definitive standard for what constitutes a green building in design, construction and operation.

Jacobs set up the LEED strategy, developed the energy model, performed document control and executed the commissioning of this highly sustainable building. The group's VP Mark Bello said: "This Platinum LEED certification demonstrates that our and Intesa Sanpaolo’s environmental goals on this project have been achieved and that this building is a high performing tower with the most advanced technical solutions and highest principles of environmental sustainability.”
