– Enterprise Fleet Services has announced the grand opening of a new 29,087 square-foot environmentally friendly facility for its Operations Center in Maplewood, Mo. (St. Louis County). Not only is the new space designed to comply with standards established for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification, it is one of the first projects to qualify for the new Commercial Interiors (CI) category for leased space. The new CI category was officially launched earlier this month at the GreenBuild conference in Oregon. The Enterprise Fleet Operations Center expansion project, which has already received preliminary acceptance by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) represents an instance when a fleet management company has been considered for LEED certification. Based on scientific standards, LEED certification emphasizes strategies for sustainable site development, energy efficiency, materials selection, and indoor environmental quality. Only those projects that have been accepted by the U.S. Green Building Council can be considered for LEED certification.The new Enterprise Operations Center will house several business areas, including the National Service Department, New Vehicle Acquisitions, Claims Management, and Business Management.
