Van Andel Institute Earns Highest "Green Building" Award
Date:4/20/2011

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., April 20, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Van Andel Institute's 240,000 square foot Phase II building has been awarded LEED Platinum status by the United States Green Building Council (USGBC). The award recognizes West Michigan's efforts to remain a leader in sustainable development, marks VAI as only the second facility awarded Platinum LEED for New Construction in Michigan, and sets the Institute and its facility apart with a dozen national peers as a leader of sustainable building practices in the field of biomedical research.

"Van Andel Institute's LEED certification demonstrates tremendous green building leadership," said Rick Fedrizzi, President, CEO & Founding Chair, U.S. Green Building Council. "The urgency of USGBC's mission has challenged the industry to move faster and reach further than ever before, and Van Andel Institute serves as a prime example with just how much we can accomplish."

Developed by USGBC, LEED is an internationally recognized green building certification system, providing third-party verification that a building or community was designed and built using strategies aimed at improving performance across all the metrics that matter most: energy savings, water efficiency, CO2 emissions reduction, improved indoor environmental quality, and stewardship of resources and sensitivity to their impacts.

Platinum is the highest of four possible levels of certification.

"Van Andel Institute's Phase II building is innovative in design, and incorporates a multitude of green initiatives beyond what seemed possible for a research institute just a few short years ago," said VAI Chairman and CEO David Van Andel. "And while LEED Platinum certification is a tremendously gratifying accomplishment, we set out from the very beginning to be a leader in terms of sustainable building practices because we knew that it is the right things to do."
