Green Buildings

Looking at it as you walk up on a sunny day.

Los Rios Community College District’s goal is to build to a LEED Silver rating or equivalent in all our newly constructed buildings and all of our future capital building projects.  The District continues to require all architects who have been contracted to design our new facilities with a mandate to utilize green technology and sustainable products in their building designs whenever possible. For example, if a building is designed or located in an area that would allow it to utilize the south facing sunlight and incorporate clerestory windows in the design which can allow both light and potentially fresh air into the building, then the building design will reflect that.  Below are some highlights of features from recent buildings that have gone up on our campus.
