The building that houses the University of Wyoming’s School of Environment and Natural Resources has received Gold recognition through the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design rating system. The school’s Associate Director, Nicole Korfanta, says the Bim Kendall House received the prestigious LEED Gold certification for a number of energy efficient features.
Korfanta said that the Kendall House is the second building on the University of Wyoming campus to receive such certification. The Bim Kendall House achieved LEED certification for efficient energy, water and material use.
The building earned additional points for creating a healthy and comfortable workspace, and for incorporating educational and outreach components. Students helped plan sustainable features of the building and now the Haub School offers in-person and online tours to teach visitors how the building reduces resource consumption.
