Behind the scenes of the new
Central Terminal B.
LaGuardia Terminal B is the first airport project in the world to achieve LEED V4 Gold certification for building design and construction for the completed phases of the new terminal.This includes the Arrivals & Departures Hall, Eastern Concourse, Eastern Pedestrian Bridge and the Central Heating and Refrigeration Plant.
The project includes a mix of sustainable strategies which met specific benchmarks provided for energy efficiency, water conservation, site selection, material selection, and waste reduction. LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design), as developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), is the most widely used green building rating system in the world and has become an international symbol of excellence for projects that achieve a LEED certification.
