Business Building Earns LEED Gold Certification

The Business and Public Management building has earned the prominent LEED Gold certification, the second highest rating from the United States Green Building Council.

LEED – Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design – certification is only awarded to buildings that are planned, constructed, maintained, and operated in an environmentally sustainable manner.

The Business and Public Management Center stands out for its water efficiency, materials and resources, and indoor environmental quality. Water efficient landscaping was installed during the construction process to ensure that irrigation would not be needed. More than 15% of the materials used to construct the building are from recycled content, and the building uses individual temperature controls and energy efficient lighting to save costs throughout the building.

This is the third LEED-certified building on campus: Mitchell Hall and the School of Music and Performing Arts Center are both LEED Silver.
