Who says technology can’t be environmentally friendly? Edison State College has much to be proud of as their Kenneth P. Walker Health Sciences Hall, which was designed to have a minimal impact on the environment, received its Silver Certification in Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED)from the U.S. Green Building Council.

Inside the building you will find cutting edge technology designed to provide students in the nursing program optimal hands-on learning, using computer simulated medical situations. Outside may look like just any other building, but behind the scenes our civil engineers put much time and thought into the overall site design of the building, reconfiguration of parking lots, utility design, surface water management and drainage solutions. All these components played a critical role in achieving the honor of being accepted as LEED Silver Certified. We look forward to working closely with the college in pursuit of LEED certification for Building U, Building T (Collegiate High School) Expansion, Student Housing (Building W) and future buildings throughout the campus.
