Green Building Demonstration

Want to learn about green building? The Rodeo Park Interpretive Center is an example to watch, with its goal of LEED Certification. The building will have office space and an interpretive gallery for historical exhibits related to the Days of the Old West Rodeo and the site.

The building design and construction process will:

  • Save at least 20% more energy and 30% more water than a typical building of the same size and function
  • Use salvaged materials supplied by Challenge partner the Building Material Thrift Store.
  • Aim to recycle 50% of its construction waste.         

Construction is expected to commence in Spring 2012.

The Green Building Demonstration includes demonstrations and tours. Beginning in July 2012, on-site demonstrations and presentations will be conducted for technical stakeholders such as the AIA, Wood River Contractors Association, Wood River High School Construction Academy, etc. Beginning in October 2012, post-construction tours will be conducted for both technical stakeholders and the general public.

Intested in USGBC's LEED process or want LEED project experience? Let Mariel Platt know and she can put your knowledge to work and document your time towards LEED AP, LEED NC, or LEED Green Associate continuing education credit requirements!

The Rodeo Park Interpretive Center is in good company. Rocky Mountain Hardware's manufacturing facility on Airport Way, just down the road, is also a LEED building - LEED Gold to be exact! Click here to read all about it.
