1954 Chemistry Research Building – LEED Silver

Completed in 2005, the 105,000 square foot state-of-the-art Class of 1954 Chemistry Research Building was Yale’s pilot LEED project and paved the way for future green building initiatives at the University. Receiving a LEED Silver rating from the US Green Building Council in 2006, its sustainable features include: reusing water from the reverse osmosis system; low-flow water fixtures; an energy efficient ventilation system and the use of heat exchangers to harvest wasted energy; low volatile organic compound finishes and paints; and recycled construction and demolition waste.
