LEED Building Plaque

The University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign currently features 32 LEED® certified projects, with several more projects in the active certification process. The State of Illinois is a national leader in sustainable building design, requiring a minimum of LEED® Silver certification for all major renovations and new construction projects over 10,000 square feet.

Since initiating the first LEED® certified campus building in 2009, F&S Capital Programs and Engineering Services staff have collaborated with campus units to certify over 14 percent of building space.
