LEED Platinum certification is the highest level of endorsement awarded by the United States Green Building Council.

The United States Green Building Council (USGBC) awarded the certification under its Building Design + Construction rating system, which considers a development’s basic building blocks, operational efficiencies, green material selection and sustainable design innovations.

Designed by Gensler, the Indimi Business Center’s many eco-friendly features include:

  • Indoor water use 92 percent lower than a typical academic building
  • Total outdoor water use 32 percent lower than LEED® baseline
  • 100 percent reflective roofing to help reduce the “heat island” effect that occurs when urban areas are hotter than surrounding rural areas
  • 21 percent of building materials made from recycled content
  • 16 percent of building materials sourced from within 500 miles of the project site
  • 68 percent of new wood responsibly harvested from Forest Stewardship Council-approved sources
  • 50 percent of the site has vegetated or pedestrian hardscape area
  • Individual and multi-occupant lighting and thermal controls for comfort and well-being
  • Location near public transportation hubs
  • Maximized access to natural daylight and external views
  • Widespread recycling program for glass, metal, cardboard, paper and plastic
  • Optimal air quality with increased ventilation systems and low-emission building materials

In addition to its sustainable objectives, the Indimi Business Center was designed with hands-on, technology-based learning in mind. It is outfitted with state-of-the-art systems to enhance students’ educational environments, with 11 classrooms and more than 15 spaces for collaboration between students, faculty and outside corporations.
