The Stephen M. Ross School of Business' Kresge renovation and Jeff T. Blau Hall project has received LEED Gold certification from the U.S. Green Building Council.
LEED, or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, is a green-building certification program that recognizes facilities for being energy efficient and environmentally sustainable.
The project designs include energy and water conservation measures such as occupancy sensors for lighting control, energy efficient light fixtures, the incorporation of natural daylight, and low-flow bathroom fixtures.
These measures are expected to allow for energy savings of an estimated 30 percent. The Kresge renovation and Blau Hall project is among 14 LEED certified facilities on the Ann Arbor campus.
