The Centex Building at The International Center in Dallas, Texas achieves benchmark energy conservation and operating efficiencies. Engineered and developed by Harwood International of Dallas, it carries an unprecedented ENERGY STAR rating of 99. The mid-rise building, designed by noted architect Richard Keating, is the corporate headquarters for Centex, one of the nation's largest residential home developer and construction contractor.

"I believe that the real estate industry should develop properties that give something back to the community from both an architectural and environmental aspect," says Harwood International Chief Executive Officer Gabriel Barbier-Mueller. "We must strive to continually think of the long range results of our projects."

Doug Walker, President of Harwood Management Services points out that the company's commitment to energy conservation is based on the belief that there is a way to deliver an office product with lower operating costs that will increase the return on investment to an owner while reducing the occupancy cost to the tenant. "The ENERGY STAR program enables critical evaluation of a building's performance in order to achieve these goals."

International Center is showcased by green space that includes a formal, 1.5 acre European garden planted with mature trees from the company's own nursery. Harwood International employs skilled architects, engineers, landscape designers and a full-time corporate energy manager to assure a seamless approach to addressing energy and environmental planning.
