Turning Green Into Gold

March 11, 2006

John R. Howard Hall has earned the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold certification for environmentally friendly design from the U.S. Green Building Council. The 50,000-square-foot academic building is the latest example of Lewis & Clark’s commitment to sustainable building practices. Howard Hall joins approximately 40 other comparably rated buildings across the country.
