In April, this report was given to the Los Rios Board of Directors. Click on the link below and you’ll find quite a number of efforts happening across our 4-college district. Did you know that every new building is built to LEED Silver specification? And that we have 2 LEED buildings with a 3rd coming soon?

From this report:

  • “The District is committed to the US Green Building Council’s LEED standards. While we have only officially certified two buildings – the CRC Winn Center (LEED Platinum) and the Davis Center Phase 1 (LEED Silver), and are in the process of certifying a third (the Davis Center Phase 2 (LEED Silver) – because of the high cost associated with “official” LEED certification, we have required all our new facilities be designed and built to LEED Silver equivalency. In order to achieve this, we require our design teams to demonstrate that they have achieved the Silver level by scoring between 50 to 59 points on the LEED certification checklist shown below.”
