Sasaki is proud to announce that our Middebury College Virtue Field House has been granted LEED Gold certification by the U.S. Green Building Council. This achievement is representative of the college's commitment to sustainability—to create a facility that serves the campus community as well as the surrounding environment.
The project team for the Virtue Field House consisted of Middlebury College, Sasaki and our consultant team, which included RFS Engineering, Otter Creek Engineering, LeMessurier, and LEED consultant Linda Samter. The project was built by PC Construction. LEED was incorporated early in the project planning phase with LEED goals and requirements communicated to all involved parties. The LEED consultant worked with the integrated team through design and construction in ensuring LEED requirements were incorporated into the project.
