The State of Florida made a commitment in the 1990s to build green buildings for state offices in the future. Many of the green building performance measures identified and recognized as LEED have long been an integral part of building construction at the Florida Department of Management Services. The goals focus on energy conservation, reduced maintenance, low replacement costs and improving indoor air quality.
The State made a commitment that the Revenue campus would become a LEED model for state office buildings. The campus received LEED Gold-Certification in November 2010.
Construction of the Revenue campus began in June 2008. The campus features two five-story buildings and one two-story call center totaling approximately 474,000 square feet. It will save nearly $1 million annually in rent and energy costs.
