Triton College has been awarded the U.S. Green Building Council’s (USGBC) Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver Certification for its newly renovated Health and Sciences Building (H Building). LEED is an internationally recognized green building certification program that honors best-in-class building practices and strategies. Leaders of the H Building renovation project were recognized for the accomplishment during Triton’s monthly board of trustees meeting. “We are extremely proud of the new Health and Sciences Building and are honored to be recognized for our commitment to sustainability and the health and well-being of the community,” said Triton College Associate V.P. of Facilities John Lambrecht. “This project was a collaborative effort on the part of many individuals and falls very much in line with our mission of providing a student-centered learning environment for our community.” Triton’s revamped Health and Sciences Building opened in fall 2015, featuring cutting-edge equipment and tools that are helping to prepare a new generation of students to succeed in a variety of health care careers. Students enrolled in programs including nursing, surgical technology, diagnostic medical sonography, nuclear medicine, ophthalmology and more are learning their craft in the comfortable, state-of-the art facility.
