University Expects to Receive Gold LEED Certification for New Parking Structure

Colorado State University recently opened a new 835 space parking garage. The university expects the project to receive Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold certification later this year in recognition of its many green features.

Special parking spaces are available in the garage for LEED-qualified vehicles –– vehicles with low emissions. The entire building is designed for better air circulation than most garages. Additionally, 9,000 square feet of photovoltaic solar panels, which convert the sun’s power to electricity, will be installed on the roof.

The new structure will include offices for parking services and retail space.
