Carr Hall certified LEED Gold!

January 24th, 2013


The Richard J Cook Center for Environmental Science renovation in Carr Hall has achieved LEED Gold certification from the U.S. Green Building Council. The Gold certification recognizes the renovation’s exceptional use of sustainable materials including those with recycled content, rapidly renewable fibers, and a cradle to cradle manufacturing model; healthy indoor air quality; unique indoor landscaping, a living wall, and aquaponics systems; extensive daylighting thanks to solar tubes and skylights; and significant energy savings due to building envelope improvements, heat recovery techniques, energy efficient LED and T5 lighting, and CO2, motion and lumen sensors.
Carr Hall is also Allegheny College’s showcase project for the White House’s Better Buildings Challenge.
