GLRPPR Sector Resource: EPA's Green Future for Laboratories: A Case Study of the Kansas City Science & Technology Center

Title:
EPA's Green Future for Laboratories: A Case Study of the Kansas City Science & Technology Center

Abstract:
This case study details the design and construction of the Kansas City Science & Technology Center, the U.S. EPA’s Region 7 laboratory. The building was designed to be "green," and is applying for a Gold Level sustainable design rating from the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program. A few examples of sustainable practices used in the construction of the building include energy efficient lighting, water conservation (including a rooftop rainwater recapture system), recycled content materials, and xeriscaping on the grounds around the building.
