FARMINGDALE, N.Y. – Ross Greenberg, Ferrandino & Son’s director of lighting and electrical programs, has become LEED Certified in Operations and Maintenance.

“Green Buildings promote healthy living by existing in harmony with the environment - and that is something I wanted to be a part of,” Greenberg said.  “Measures for efficient use of energy and other renewable sources of energy help in lowering daily operating costs. Since my position as director of lighting and electrical programs at Ferrandino & Son is all about helping our clients achieve the best reduction in energy, being LEED certified in Operations and Maintenance was essential.”

“Ross’ Certification will have a major impact on our clients and how we help them build out their Lighting and Electrical Programs,” said Kevin Smith, chief operating officer for Ferrandino & Son. “Being environmentally responsible, while creating immediate cost efficiencies for our clients, is of tremendous importance to us. We are proud to offer LEED certified services.”

Electricity generated by fossil fuels release harmful pollutants that further aggravate global warming and climate change. Green Buildings are engineered in a way that will make the most of renewable energy like solar energy - and techniques like day lighting. Companies that change their lighting systems to LED will allow for that energy efficiency and harmful emissions will be reduced.   

This LEED certification complements the core services offered in Ferrandino & Son’s Lighting and Electrical Program, which include Preventative Maintenance, Replacement & Retrofit Programs, and Emergency Response Services.
