DPR advances its efforts in environmentally friendly construction with the completion of The Evergreen State College’s 160,000-sq.-ft. Seminar II project, which has achieved LEED® Gold level certification.

Designed to match the existing 4,400-student campus, the five interconnected concrete clusters that make up the structure is nearly 80 percent naturally ventilated through operable windows and small screened openings under the windows to provide airflow even during the Pacific Northwest’s rainy days.

Other features include:
• A 21,000-sq.-ft. green roof that allowed significant reduction of the onsite storm water detention requirement.
• Adler wood trim to maintain a natural look for the building.
• Cork flooring and carpet made from recycled materials and applied with a nontoxic adhesive
