Arctic Directory 2018: Kantishna Roadhouse awarded Gold LEED certification

Petroleum News

Doyon Ltd. said it is proud to announce that Kantishna Roadhouse, a wholly owned Doyon subsidiary, has officially been awarded the prestigious Gold Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design certification.

The LEED rating system, developed by the U.S. Green Building Council, is an internationally recognized green building certification system aimed at improving the metrics that matter most to building owners and the community: energy savings, water efficiency, carbon dioxide emissions reduction and improved environmental effects.

Purchased by Doyon in 1995, Kantishna Roadhouse has undergone numerous improvements and building additions. As part of the recent certification process, the Roadhouse implemented a recycling program and installed new windows, LED lighting and low flow appliances.

These improvements and many others provided ways to maximize efficiency and environmental sustainability of the building to help achieve Gold certification. “Our goal for operations at the Kantishna Roadhouse has always been to uphold Doyon’s mission of protecting and enhancing our land and resources and to practice the Doyon value of being socially and culturally responsible in how we do business,” said Kantishna Roadhouse General Manager Marie Monroe.

“The Gold LEED certification validates our hard work and acknowledges that we are on track with our efforts to be good stewards of the land. We are proud of this accomplishment, and we will continue to strive to do more and do better.”

Doyon Ltd. offers visitors the opportunity to experience the splendor of the Denali National Park through the Kantishna Roadhouse and Kantishna wilderness trails.
