Green Plans Revealed for Phase 2 of Western Illinois University Construction Project


Site Plan for Phase 2 of the WIU campus.

Dr. Rives stated that the Phase 1 green building project has helped tremendously with student, faculty and staff recruitment. “Premier students want premier facilities,” he said, “and there’s no question – we have them.”

“For Phase 2, we are aiming for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver certification,” Davis said. “Phase 2 will utilize a strong combination of environment-friendly green features.” Developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), LEED is the world’s most widely used and recognized green building program. The LEED system is point-based, and the level of a LEED project – Certified, Silver, Gold or Platinum – is determined by the number of points it has earned. A project can receive LEED points at various stages in its development, such as design or construction.
