AB-7, a LEED Building

LEED Certification of Academic Building 7 (AB7)


As a key element in Florida Gulf Coast University’s signing of the American College and University’s Presidents’ Climate Commitment, all of our buildings will be certified through the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification system.  The purpose of this system is to have external verification that our buildings are designed and built to save energy, increase water efficiency, reduce CO2 emissions, improve indoor air quality, and demonstrate stewardship of resources.
