Arena Awarded LEED Gold Certification

EUGENE, Ore. — It looks silver and black, but Matthew Knight Arena is almost as green as it gets.

The University of Oregon announced Wednesday that the building was awarded LEED gold certification. That’s the second-highest offered after platinum.

The arena is the first building on campus to achieve gold status.

It received the certification for energy and lighting efficiency, water and material use, and how it incorporates a variety of other sustainable strategies.
