Video: UI’s green buildings

Back in 2009, the University of Iowa committed themselves to building while following LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) standards. LEED provides third-party verification of green buildings, and gives grades such as silver, gold and platinum depending on the buildings’ energy efficiency and environmental friendliness.

UI has exceeded expectations in their recent construction projects. The school’s Information Technology Facility is one of the few IT buildings in the world to receive a platinum grade.
