Going Beyond Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED): Sustainable Laboratory DesignThe pursuit of sustainability goals, as defined by LEED, has generated increased efforts by both owners and the construction industry. However, to actually create a sustainable facility it must go beyond LEED and, in fact, fully sustain itself. Two Flad projects embodying this challenge are a confidential client’s Renewable Energy Laboratory in Malaysia and Stony Brook University’s Advanced Energy Research and Technology Center. This paper explores how the design team must move beyond a standard approach and embrace a myriad of new challenges.
