|State Hygienic Laboratory takes the LEED|

What does it take to build a LEED-certified testing facility? The State Hygienic Laboratory recently earned gold certification for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design because it was built and operates in an eco-friendly manner.
Located on the UI Research Park campus, the Hygienic Lab incorporates the rigorous design and safety requirements of a laboratory facility along with LEED elements in five categories: sustainable sites, water efficiency, energy and atmosphere, materials and resources, and indoor environment. It all combines for a sustainable yet very welcoming place to work.
That means that many of the construction materials were manufactured within the region to reduce the environmental burden associated with hauling materials to the Coralville site. The heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems were selected to minimize or eliminate the emission of compounds that contribute to ozone depletion. Lockers and break-room chairs were constructed with 100 percent post-consumer recycled materials.
UI President Sally Mason: “This is a lot more than just a laboratory facility. It represents a promise we’ve made to the people of Iowa for over 100 years, and that’s to protect them and help ensure that we live in the healthiest state possible.”
