Take a Tour of the Lee Center!

1 Comment

Next time you are on campus, spend a few minutes on a self-guided tour of the Lee Center.  Start in the lobby at our intro display that provides background on the sustainable features and LEED certification. Interact with the touchscreen to view our energy dashboard. You can learn how much solar power is being generated by our sunshades (visible from the 3rd floor–south hall) and check out the energy usage of our building throughout the year. Then, grab a self-guided tour brochure and use it to follow informational signs throughout the building. At each, you will learn a fun fact or two about why the Lee Center was able to earn LEED Gold Certification.  Feel free to keep the brochure, or return it to the display when you are done. We also welcome you to learn more about the Center while off campus by reading this feature in Sustainable Chicago.
