College of Lake County – LEED Platinum Certified

Path Construction completed a new four-story, 42,000 square foot Science & Engineering Building at the College of Lake County, which recently has been certified by the USGBC (U.S. Green Building Council) as LEED Platinum – the highest level of certification.

The building was built directly adjacent to the existing Building C at the College of Lake County. The new addition includes offices, laboratories, and general support spaces. Additional project scope included 25,000 square feet of interior renovations in the existing space. The new two-story atrium also serves as a southern main campus entrance.

The Science & Engineering Building has earned more points than any other certified LEED project in Illinois, according to David Husemoller, LEED AP, CLC’s sustainability manager. Some of the LEED components included the following: photo-voltaic solar panels, green roofs of planted vegetation, geothermal heating and cooling system, energy efficient fume hoods in the chemistry labs, LED lighting and daylight harvesting, and rainwater retention.
