There is a new internet search engine you can use to access green building data for thousands of LEED certified buildings nationally and abroad. Unveiled by the USGBC at GreenBuild in November 2012, the Green Building Information Gateway provides statistics on LEED projects, such as their certification date, the level achieved, and the points awarded.

I searched for Rhode Island and clicked on the University Dining Hall at URI in South Kingstown, a project PARE worked on with Vision III Architects. The website shows that it received LEED Silver in June 2008, earning points over a number of categories including water efficiency, sustainable sites, and indoor air quality. Check it out here and while you’re there, search for other projects in our area.
