The FAS Eddy Rivas Laboratory Renovation, LEED GOLD – Case Study
The project’s goals were to create high performance lab spaces that optimize energy and the indoor environment, reduce resource consumption, and increase occupant engagement. The project team was committed to sustainability from the onset and followed the Harvard Green Building Standards to make more informed decisions. These standards led to the inclusion of a number of progressive design strategies to meet aggressive energy targets and reduce water use without significant additional cost. The project achieved LEED-CI v3 Gold certification in December 2016.
