When constructed in 2003, this sustainable renovation was the third LEED Platinum building in the nation and the only one in the Midwest. Developed through an integrated design process, it demonstrates a variety of innovative yet proven sus¬tainable technologies including solar panel electrical generation, bio-swale filtered parking lot runoff, high reflec¬tance hardscape to reduce the “urban heat island” effect, high performance insulation, low-VOC paints and seal¬ants, a geothermal HVAC system and recycled materials.
