US Foods and ESI are awarded their first LEED Certification

Description of Work: The US Foodservice regional distribution center is located on a 40 acre site in Buda, 

Texas. The irrigation system for this site was designed to utilize both AC condensate reclamation and 

rainwater harvesting. The rainwater and AC condensate is stored in a 35,000 gallon underground cistern

until it is used for landscape irrigation. The irrigation components used for this project were selected 

because of their LEED aspects. Irrigation efficiency, non-potable water use and rainwater harvesting 

were at the forefront of the design process.  LEED Silver was awarded by the U.S. Green Building Council  in November 2012.
