Caltech's Gates-Thomas Lab Certified LEED Gold v4

The Gates-Thomas Laboratory on Caltech’s campus in Pasadena has just been certified LEED Gold v4 in the BD+C, New Construction category. As part of the USGBC’s pilot program for this newest version of LEED, the project met a more stringent set of criteria becoming the first project in California and the first higher education facility in the United States to reach Gold under BD+C v4. The energy-efficient addition/renovation project features state-of-the-art labs; experimental and computational facilities; and open spaces where faculty, scholars, and students can collaborate on and share ideas across disciplines.
