Energy Savings:

Wildcats on Prowl for Greener Homes

When most students go to college, their number one concern isn't a green living space, but the University of Kentucky is setting their sights higher than just a comfortable living space for their students—they're aiming to certify the new dorm buildings LEED-Silver.

The University is currently undergoing a five building dorm-replacement project. Included in this project is the replacement of the Haggin Honors Housing Facility, which will be replaced with two new buildings (a north and south building) to house approximately 600 students.

"We're excited to partner with Messer Construction and TP Mechanical to help the University of Kentucky achieve LEED-Silver certification," says Rory Cousino, Commissioning Project Manager at Four Seasons Environmental, Inc.
