Bentley History and Development: 2006 – Going Bigger & Going Green

US Green Building Council MemberIn 2006, Bentley was awarded its largest project to date, the Gainesville Regional Utilities’ Eastside Operations Center. Bentley won the contract based on its keen interest in the project and past experience with maintenance facility design. The completed facility features numerous buildings totaling 177,317 square feet on a 53-acre site. The $50 million project was also Bentley’s first LEED-certified project, with sustainable and energy-saving design features.

LEED design became popular in the following years, and the Governor mandated that all new State facilities be designed to LEED standards. This opened a new niche for Bentley, and the company went on to secure two other LEED facilities: Gainesville Fire Station 8, and Kissimmee Fire Station 11.
