Reliable Plaza

Reliable Plaza

The Greenest Building in Downtown

In 2009, OUC's Reliable Plaza earned Gold Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification, officially cementing the 10-story administration center as the "Greenest Building in downtown Orlando." The non-profit U.S. Green Building Council awarded the Gold level certification after completing a review of the building's design and construction. Reliable Plaza also holds a Florida Water Star certification, a voluntary program for new and existing construction that encourages water efficiency in appliances plumbing fixtures, irrigation systems and landscapes.

When the land under OUC’s former parking garage was required for the Department of Transportation’s expansion of State Road 408, OUC evaluated its options and made the decision to build a new 110,000-square-foot customer service and administration center and set the standard for sustainable buildings in Orlando. While this new green home was a major milestone for OUC, it was also a first for the Central Florida community. Designed to meet the requirements for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold Certification, Reliable Plaza earned the title of “The Greenest Building in Downtown Orlando.” It was designed to use about 28 percent less energy and 40 percent less water than similar buildings built to code.
