LEED is the nation's top program for the design, construction, and operation of high-performance green buildings. Earning this certification exceeds Gwinnett County Library's expectations for this branch. It was originally designed with the intention of reaching LEED® Silver certification.
In addition, the Hamilton Mill branch was recognized by the Georgia chapter of USGBC with an Honorable Mention for Excellence in Sustainability for its commitment to total sustainability and the value of return on investing in a public project during times of economic hardship on October 2, 2010.
In August 2010, the library branch also received the Building of America Gold Medal Feature for unique and challenging new projects that focus on giving back to the community.
