Tour Wayne State's Chemistry Building, 2012 ESD award winner
October 4, 2012
The Engineering Society of Detroit will offer tours of the Wayne State University Chemistry Building, the 2012 ESD Construction & Design Award Winner, on Monday, Oct. 22 from 5 to 6 p.m. Throughout the Chemistry Building's design and construction, emphasis was placed on ensuring at least a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver rating through high energy and environmental performance. LEED, a certificate program administered by the U.S. Green Building Council, offers points for buildings meeting standards in sustainable building design and construction. The expansion achieved design objectives in both safety and environmental sustainability, allowing the university to make a long-term investment in safe translational research and energy conservation.
