LEED Gold and Silver Certified Buildings

Miami’s 32 LEED Gold-and Silver-certified buildings account for 31 percent of the building square footage on the Oxford campus.

Miami University recently earned its fifth Gold certification for a LEED building (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design). Completed in the summer of 2020, the renovation of Pearson Hall, home to Miami’s life sciences departments, is Miami’s first academic building to earn LEED Gold status.

Miami also received its 27th LEED Silver certification for the renovation of Stanton Hall, a residence hall on South Quad.

LEED building principles include energy efficiency and reduction, indoor environmental air quality, water conservation and use of recycled building materials, among others.  

The renovation of Pearson Hall included replacing the ventilation and water-conditioning systems and other improvements to reduce its energy footprint by more than 50%. Many indoor spaces are now immersed in natural light. The renovation replaced concrete block walls with full-height glass walls and converted an underused courtyard into a bright, airy space topped by a pyramid of glass.

The renovation of Stanton Hall is part of a campus-wide plan to upgrade student housing and improve energy and water efficiency, accessibility and safety, among other features.
