LCC will hold an open house to showcase the new Downtown Center on March 15. While hundreds of students and teachers have been using the building for classes over the last two months, the college says it now wants to show the community the all of the features inside.
Building representatives say the Downtown Center is basically “one giant classroom” from the top floor down thanks to several green elements and the incorporation of real building function into the student work environment.
On the green side, the building is going after a LEED Platinum status. LEED Platinum is one of the highest rankings for sustainable building projects as set by the U.S. Green Building Council. Throughout its design and construction, crews incorporated elements like a significant use of natural light, using the heat of the earth to help control air temperature, also using plants and water to help shed and reuse rainwater.
