Michigan colleges are ahead of the game. Any state-supported projects of more than $1 million are now required to follow LEED standards. According to Interior Design, this means:
At Lawrence Technological University in Southfield, Michigan, students will soon have a $15 million student services center with a geothermal heating system, a green roof, waterless urinals, solar-powered light pillars, and low energy consumption.
In addition, the Dana Building at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor employs a variety of conservation technologies, including active solar power. We will look forward to seeing schools below college level join in the future-thinking fun. ::Via Interior Design
