LEED Silver green building commitment
In 2008, the Board of Trustees of Claremont McKenna College implemented a policy for all new buildings and major renovations to achieve a minimum of LEED Silver Certification and support green building practices. The policy also states that all other building renovation projects will also apply LEED standards throughout the course of the project, as applicable. Similarly, the College will apply principles of sustainability and related best practices in its daily maintenance and operation.
In accordance with this policy, Crown Hall achieved LEED Silver certification, and Kravis Center achieved LEED Gold. The Mid-Quad dormitory additions were built to LEED silver standards, and the Roberts Pavilion anticipates gold LEED certification in 2016.
