Patterson LEED Certified

Published: August 21, 2015

CHENEY, Washington -Eastern Washington University's Patterson Hall has received environmental certification for its sustainable design by the U.S. Green Building Council. Patterson earned gold certification from the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program, which is sponsored by the Council.

Patterson Hall Gold Certificate from LEED

EWU's largest academic building, Patterson Hall, is located next to the Pence Union Building (PUB) in the heart of the EWU campus. Starting in 2010, the hall began a $57 million reconstruction project which involved stripping the building to its foundation. The building's sustainable building design is highlighted by a new glass facade that surrounds the 34,000 square feet added to the structure, which reopened in January 2014.

Patterson's environmentally-friendly construction and landscaping met the minimum standards for LEED gold certification. The LEED program promotes the use of low environmental impact materials and design methods, as well as giving special attention to natural lighting, low maintenance landscaping and other environmentally sensitive products and designs.

The University Recreation Center, completed in 2008, has also earned LEED gold certification.
