LEED Gold Buildings

All new buildings at Seattle University are designed to achieve LEED Gold standards. There are currently 4 LEED Gold buildings on Campus. They each feature native, drought-tolerant plants; high efficiency energy systems and water fixtures; Forest Stewardship Council certified wood products; and building products made locally of recycled materials and with low VOC content.

Solar panels, green roof, and a rainwater cistern mark our first LEED-Gold building, built in 2009. 

Renovating a warehouse, Energy Star rated office equipment, GreenGuard Certified furniture, and reused furniture are the hallmarks of this LEED Gold building (2010). 

A rain garden, a chilled beam that cools the computer lab, and a raised floor suppling warm air near occupants’ feet are the highlights of the LEED Gold library addition (2011).

 

Windows with a view, parking for 50 bikes, and 30% more outdoor air ventilation are the green features of our fourth LEED-Gold building (2012).
