This award recognizes our environmental efforts at the Seattle ramp including the replacement of over 500 lighting fixtures with new energy-efficient fixtures and sensors. The environmental impact of this project is equivalent to removing about 51 cars from the roads or planting 78 acres of trees.

Boy, it was fun!
