Higher Educational Buildings

Higher Educational institutions have long been aware of the importance of sustainability in their buildings and operations, as indicated by the overwhelming success of and participation in AASHE (the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education). In addition to enjoying operating cost savings, enhanced reputation, and a healthier work / learning environment, these institutions also reap the intrinsic benefits of providing enhanced curriculum to their students in the area of sustainability. SDC has been dedicated to providing green building services for higher educational institutions since its inception in 2002. The types of buildings in this category include academic / classroom buildings, student services facilities, athletic facilities, and campus administration buildings. To date, SDC has provided LEED process management, as well as services related to state adaptations of the International Green Construction Code (IgCC), for more than 50 higher educational projects.
