LEED, or Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design, is a green building program that has set out to transform the way buildings and communities are designed, built, and operated.
According to the Department of Energy, LEED standards aimed at reducing water, waste, and emissions have helped building owners to reduce their energy use by as much as 25% while lowering their operational costs by as much as 19% compared to the national average.
Join us for a tour of the Northwest Corner (NWC) Building led by Joseph Mannino, Vice President of Capital Project Management & Planning at Columbia University Facilities, to learn about Columbia’s commitment to LEED and how the process of becoming Gold-certified has contributed to better building design and performance at NWC.
Also guiding the tour will be Adam Friedberg, the LEED consultant who participated in the NWC Building planning process, Janet Grapengeter, Director of Design and Compliance at Columbia Facilities, and Jessica Prata, Assistant Vice President of Environmental Stewardship at Columbia.
