An editorial from The Times West Virginian
FAIRMONT, W.Va. — Did you notice the special section wrapped around today’s edition of the Times West Virginian?
The commemorative section, full of stories and photographs, features eight pages about the grand opening of the new West Virginia State Office Building in downtown Fairmont.
It totals five floors and houses nine agencies, occupying 70,800 square feet of space. The building has achieved LEED Gold certification for its energy efficiency and its footprint on the environment, which denotes its ability to save money and resources by existing as a “green building.”
Some of the offices within the building are Department of Health and Human Resources, WorkForce West Virginia, Division of Rehabilitation Services, Offices of the Insurance Commissioner, General Services Division and Secretary of State.
Of course, the transformation didn’t happen overnight…
