USCS' Covington facility in Tennessee


United States Cold Storage's ("USCS") Covington facility has earned LEED Gold Certification in the US Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design ("LEED") programme. Completed in January 2015, the 9,010,000-cubic-foot dedicated ice cream storage facility is USCS' first LEED-certified warehouse. Projects pursuing LEED certification earn points across several areas in sustainable design and construction practices. The Covington facility has implemented a range of energy-efficient technologies that have helped reduce the warehouse's energy consumption by 32%. Other initiatives include the use of vegetated swales to reduce storm water discharge, native species landscaping to eliminate irrigation requirements and the installation of bicycle racks to promote alternative transportation practices and reduce vehicle emissions.
