I applauld GE for their Eco stance, and using as much of thier own GE eco products at every possible turn. Nice pictures. Nice marketing effort. But, how was the highest LEED level achieved in this facility? The fact that a data center has recieved this seems counter logical, and yet there is absolutly no information given in this 'article' on how that was acomplished. Need more architecural meat to this story.
