Green Building Project Round-Up
Wednesday, December 19, 2007—Reprinted from The SmartCool Blog.
Every so often, it's nice to take a look at some of the big green building projects around the country and look to see how things are catching on. The higher the profile, the more likely we're going to see increased enthusiasm for green building and, hopefully in turn, an exponential spread through the market.
- Ohlone College of Newark, California is getting a new health and technology center at a cost of $60 million. The project, which the college hopes to be certified LEED Platinum, will be complete and ready to inhabit in the next few weeks. Representing a growing trend on the west coast for nearly every new project of any profile whatsoever to go for LEED certification, the Ohlone College building is just another feather in California's cap as they continue to lead the way, and provide an example, for the rest of the United States.
