UCSB - Bren Hall

Project Location: United States

We are very excited to be wrapping up our third LEED Lab project at UCSB. This ear we are certifying the iconic Bren Hall under Version 4 of the EBO&M rating system. This year we've had 40 students in the class, which has proven to be a bit of a large class, but with a great diversity in skill sets and backgrounds. UCSB's LEED Lab is a 1-year course that requires students to commit to three consecutive quarters. Looking forward to a successful review!

We are wrapping up our second semester and finishing our performance period, we expect soon to have the first building in Mexico certified under a LEED-Lab. We are so happy and we would like to share ideas with others.

LEED Lab

Project Location: United States

Cuesta College typically holds two LEED Lab sessions a year. We are lucky to work with several Community Partners working on projects in every rating system. This program gives our students access to "real world" projects, with all the complexities that come with them, and our Partners benefit from our diverse student involvement. I'm excited to see this as a Pilot Credit as it may encourage more partners to collaborate with us.
