"We are extremely proud of Van Andel Institute's achievement in attaining the highest standard of LEED certification.  This is no easy task and demonstrates a commitment to sustainability and leadership within the Institute's own industry as well as that of green building. It will also continue to help Grand Rapids stay at the forefront of the green building movement," said Renae Hesselink, Chair, U.S. Green Building Council of West Michigan.
