UO’s Knight Law Center LEED Certified

RRR KNIGHT LAW CENTER PICEUGENE, Ore. — The University of Oregon now has another energy efficient building on campus.

The William Knight Law Center is the third LEED gold certified building, and officials say it’s been a lot of work to get to this point.

LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design.

The law center earned the status through many different modifications over the last three years.

The building manager says they’ve monitored use of electricity and heating, installed motion sensored lights, and changed most light bulbs to LED bulbs.

“It’s just something that I think the campus in general is committed to to reduce the footprint to save energy, recycle, and it just fit well with our environmental law program,” said Jim Horstrup, building manager.

The building will have to get re-certified every five years.
