An LEED Gold certificate from the US Green Building Council has been awarded to Geddes Hall at the University of Notre Dame in Indiana, US.

The 65,500ft² building opened last year, and is home to the Center for Social Concerns and Institute for Church Life.

The structure incorporated many sustainable features including the use of locally sourced renewable or recycled building materials, diverting 97% of construction waste from landfills and reducing water consumption.

By minimising grassed lawns, the building reduces irrigation water consumption by 58%, the university said.
