The parking deck's regionally produced materials, electric hook-ups
for hybrid cars and other features helped the Seahawk Crossing
complex earn Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED)
certification from the U.S. Green Building Council. The LEED
rating system is the nationally accepted standard for design,
construction and operation of green buildings. Seahawk Crossing
is the first LEED certified project at UNCW.
