Vandalia Education Center

dedication for this building was held on May 2, 2008. This split-level 21,000
square foot building includes both classrooms and lab spaces. Construction of
completed in early summer of 2007.
Throughout the design phase of this building, the architect and engineers, along
with the design committee, recognized the need to incorporate sustainable
design, or “green” elements as the building was being developed. A “green
building” is one that uses the latest technology that is more environmentally
conscious and improves efficiencies through HVAC systems, window treatments,
landscaping, flooring, lighting, and physical placement of the building.
As a result of this planning, the project had been registered with the United
States Green Building Council. And the Vandalia Campus has been awarded LEED
(Leadership in Energy and Environment Design) certification.

the energy-conversation certification for a building project.
