Green & Sustainable Building Click for sound How Our Colleges are helping to LEED the way! (Next)
Our Colleges Flex their Green Muscles By participating in the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) rating system. NRDC: Building Green - LEED Certification Information (Next)
Community College of Philadelphia-Addition
High performance exterior that will reduce the building’s energy use.
Green roof that prevents rainwater runoff and diverts water into building for use.
Daylight harvesting to maximize natural light in learning areas.
Recycled carpeting and linoleum used in interior spaces.
Community College of Philadelphia Addition (Design Rendering) LEED Silver (Next)
Columbia University Facilities install "green roofs" Columbia University Facilities installed "green roofs" at 423 West 118th Street (above Radio Perfecto) and 635 West 115th Street, where the Office of Environmental Stewardship is located.
The benefits that green roofs deliver to the environment - include cleaner air quality and energy conservation.
Grass and plants growing on green roofs take in carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and turn it into oxygen, helping cool temperatures in the hottest months and cleaning the air supply.
Willamette University Kaneko Commons project LEED Gold certified project, the Kaneko Commons
As a LEED Gold certified project, the Kaneko Commons features water source heat pumps, a rainwater reclamation reservoir and solar hot water heating.
Photovoltaic panels not only augment the electricity supply for the building, but also serve as shading devices for residential units and the atrium.

Western New England College, Southwood Hall Western New England College
Southwood Hall boasts a geothermal heating and cooling system.
Solar heating panels, and storm water recovery for irrigation.
Rubber tile flooring, bamboo cabinets, low-flow toilets and Energy Star appliances.
Oberlin College, Environmental studies building, Lewis Center Oberlin College, Environmental studies building
The photovoltaic (PV) system on the building's roof also works to reduce environmental impact.
Geothermal wells also help to heat and cool the building.
When possible, the construction utilized scrap materials from the rest of the campus
CSUMB's 'green' library grows skyward Cal State University Monterey Bay Tanimura & Antle Family Memorial Library is not only the largest building on campus, but also the greenest.
Many of the library's energy-saving features are designed to maintain a comfortable temperature inside the building.
It's more expensive to cool a building than to heat it, so keeping heat out is the key.
The roof over the spacious atrium features a decorative "wave" design, but its shape also saves energy.
Spelman College, Atlanta, GA The Suites
Spelman College announced that The Suites has become the first residence hall at a historically Black college or university to attain the Leadership in Energy and Enviornmental Design (LEED®) certification through the U.S. Green Building Council.
