the direct path to sustainability

The new University of Wisconsin-La Crosse student union has been certified LEED gold!

Thanks to Phil Vetterkind, Director of SBS, who served as LEED Consultant and Project Administrator from design through construction of the $55 million, student-funded student union that received LEED Gold Certification. LEED, or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, is a national green building certification system that provides third-party verification that a building was designed and built using strategies aimed at increasing performance, reducing waste and improving quality of life.

This is the 39th project that SBS has consulted on resulting in a successful United States Green Building Council LEED Certification. Phil has proven time and again that pursuing LEED certification adds real value and is much more than just a plaque on the wall.
