Lakeland Electric and the City of Lakeland are working toward the goal of earning the U.S. Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design™ (LEED) certification for Existing Buildings (EB), certifying it as a high-performance green building. The initial steps have been taken with a LEED EB project number already assigned. The improvements significantly increase energy and operating efficiency, reduce maintenance costs and save taxpayers money.
UCI accomplished a major safety milestone by completing 1,000,000 man hours worked without a Lost Time Injury. In real time that means UCI crews have worked almost three and a half years on hundreds of jobs over a six-state area with no lost time incidents. Another safety record was set by UCI during this time: UCI crews have worked 20 months without a single recordable incident.
