Campbell Soup Company Employee Center
Camden, NJ – June 22, 2011 – The Campbell Soup Company’s Employee Center has been awarded LEED NC Silver Certification by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). LEED Certification was one of the many complex spatial, performance, and programmatic criteria targeted by the KlingStubbins project team, and through sustainable strategies, the project attained LEED Silver Certification, exceeding the original goal of Certified.

The energy efficient structure and construction of the Employee Center reinforces the principles, beliefs, and promise of the Campbell Soup Company while rendering it a steward of sustainable design.
