The U.S. Green Building Council awarded Iowa City’s Environmental Education Center LEED platinum certification.

The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design  designation is given to environmentally friendly buildings.

The Environmental Education Center, 2401 Scott Blvd. S.E., is the only city-owned, LEED platinum-certified facility in Iowa, according to a city press release. The center stands on what previously was an environmentally contaminated industrial site, the release said.

“The platinum award is a prestigious honor for the community,” Geoff Fruin, assistant to the Iowa City city manager, said in the release. “It demonstrates the city’s commitment to sustainable design and acknowledges the hard work and successful partnerships we enjoyed with local businesses to get this project accomplished.”
