Colby College's Harold Alfond Athletics and Recreation Center has received LEED Platinum and SITES Gold certification from U.S. Green Building Council and the The Sustainable SITES Initiative. April 22, 2022

We are delighted to announce that Colby College's Harold Alfond Athletics and Recreation Center has received LEED Platinum and SITES Gold certification from U.S. Green Building Council and the The Sustainable SITES Initiative.

 

The 350,000sq ft complex, which includes an aquatic center, ice arena, indoor track-and-field facility and fitness center, was designed to minimize embodied carbon, reduce energy and water use and optimize daylight. It achieved a perfect score in the LEED category for energy use reduction, with a 42.05% decrease over similar buildings, and is one of the first projects to achieve SITES Gold in both the state and New England.

 

Congratulations to Colby and all of the project team!
