The Davis Center has recently been awarded LEED® Gold certification by the U.S. Green Building Council. LEED is an acronym for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design and provides design guidelines that aim to reduce energy usage, water consumption, solid waste, air pollution and building toxicity. In 2005, UVM appointed a green building coordinator and adopted a green building policy whereby all new construction and major renovation projects on campus must use LEED guidelines.
In 2007, the policy was upgraded to require achieving a minimum level of LEED Silver equivalent. Since the policy has been put into effect, UVM has sought official certification for all new and major renovation building construction projects.
