Another honor for university’s sustainable building practice

The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) awarded Washington University in St. Louis one of its 2021 Leadership Awards for excellence in its West North Central Region.

The university was recognized for five buildings on the Danforth Campus achieving the USGBC’s highest green building certification: Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Platinum. Four buildings on the East End Transformation – Sumers Welcome Center, Weil Hall, Schnuck Pavilion and Jubel Hall – as well as the renovated January Hall, were all issued platinum status at the same time, further differentiating the university’s commitment to sustainable building practice.

“The 2021 USGBC Leadership Award awardees have improved our world through the power of green building and it is their contributions and work that have helped our communities stay safe and healthy,” said Mahesh Ramanujam, president and CEO of USGBC.
